The voters have spoken.
Kalman Yeger has won the race against Yoni Hikind to replace outgoing Councilman David Greenfield (D-44th) – representing parts of Boro Park, Midwood, Kensington, Bensonhurst and Gravesend.
The seat is being vacated by Councilman David Greenfield, who is taking over the leadership of the Met Council of Jewish Poverty.
Kalman Yeger began his career in public service at the age of 19 as a community liaison and assistant to Councilman Lloyd Henry. Since 2010, he has served as a Senior Advisor and is currently Counsel to New York City Councilman David Greenfield. He has advised countless public officials, including Councilman Alan Maisel, former Council Members Lew Fidler, David Yassky and Michael Nelson, Senator Simcha Felder, Borough Presidents Melinda Katz and Eric Adams, and former Borough President Fernando Ferrer.
Yeger is a graduate of Touro College and New York Law School, where he was accepted with the distinction of a Dean Scholar. Yeger was listed on the Dean’s List four times during his studies at New York Law School, and was awarded the Public Service Certificate “in recognition of work devoted to the public good while a student.”
A lifelong resident of Midwood, Kalman has been a member of Community Board 14 for the last 17 years, and has served on the Board of Directors of his local civic association.
