Plumber takes on first-term progressive in Brooklyn Senate District

First-term state Senator Julia Salazar is up for reelection on Tuesday, facing a Brooklyn plumber who is pushing for major reforms to the New York City Housing Authority.

Salzar is the first-term incumbent for Senate District 18, which encompasses the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Bushwick, Cypress Hills, Greenpoint and Williamsburg, and includes parts of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brownsville and East New York.

In 2018, she ran unopposed in the general election after beating Sen. Martin Dilan in the primary. In this year’s Democratic primary, she beat challenger Andy Marte, winning 86.7 percent of the vote.
