A group of insurgent candidates for district leader — an unpaid position that serves as the governing body of Brooklyn’s Democratic party apparatus — have soared to victory as absentee ballots trickled in this week.

“I am incredibly humbled to declare victory tonight. We did it,” said Kristina Naplatarski on Twitter July 21, announcing her win over longtime incumbent Linda Minucci for the seat to represent Greenpoint and Williamsburg. “After 36 years, the 50th Assembly District has a new District Leader. I promise to make my community proud.”
