Election Day Passes With No Surprises

Election day came and went in Queens on Tuesday with little fanfare and light turnout.

District Attorney Richard Brown was reelected to his sixth consecutive term — extending his record as the longest-running tenured D.A. in Queens history — with 36,467 votes. He was running unopposed with the backing of Democrats and Republicans.

Democrat Ruben Wills ran unopposed in the 28th City Council district, which includes part of Richmond Hill. He took 100 percent of the vote with 2,396 ballots cast. His easy reelection comes after a contentious special election last year to serve the remainder of the late Thomas White’s term.

The only contested race in Queens was for the 11th Judicial District, where 12 candidates were vying for six Queens Supreme Court seats.

Out of the 213,346 votes cast, Janice A. Taylor of Jamaica, Allan Weiss of Forest Hills, Rudolph E. Greco Jr. of Jackson Heights, Timothy J. Dufficy of Breezy Point, Pam B. Jackson-Brown of Jamaica and Ira H. Margulis of Oakland Gardens each won a seat.
