Greenfield Elected to Felder's Seat in Brooklyn

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Voters in Brooklyn have elected David Greenfield, an attorney and former staffer on Joe Lieberman's presidential campaign, to the City Council.

The special election in Borough Park, Midwood and Bensonhurst was held to fill the seat vacated by Simcha Felder, who stepped down to work for City Comptroller John Liu. Greenfield had won a number of high-profile endorsements, including one from Mayor Bloomberg. Greenfield garnered 58 percent of the vote, followed by fellow Democrat Joe Lazar, with 40 percent. Republican Ken Rice had 3 percent.

Greenfield will serve for the rest of the year. The seat will be on the ballot again in November.
