Brooklyn- The Board of Elections’ completed canvass of absentee of affidavit ballots has increased Simcha Felder’s lead by 12 votes in the 17th Senate District. The first canvass identified over 100 write-ins for Simcha Felder (more than the 94 that were scanned on election night.) The Felder campaign is now confident that Simcha Felder will receive a minimum of 121 votes, while David Storobin will lose with approximately 91 votes.
“Simcha Felder’s lead is strong and solid, and he will be the nominee of the Conservative Party,” said E. O’Brien Murray, Felder’s campaign manager. “This is a tremendous victory for a candidate whose name was not even on the ballot.”
Simcha Felder is running for the newly formed open 17th Senate District that encompasses Borough Park, Flatbush, Midwood, Kensington and Sunset Park. Felder is currently New York City’s Deputy Comptroller for Budget and Accounting. He served the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Kensington and Flatbush in the City Council from 2002 through 2010.
