After a long campaign and an extended wait for the results of New York City’s first ever ranked choice votes, the results have been confirmed: Brooklynite Lincoln Restler has secured his election win.

After receiving 63% of the vote (14,304 total votes), Restler will move on as the Democratic candidate to represent District 33 on City Council Elizabeth Adams trailed behind Restler in second place, with 37% of the vote (8,408 total votes).

“We came out ahead in every single neighborhood in the 33rd: DUMBO / Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, Northside, South Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bed-Stuy. And it’s all because of the coalition we built together,” Restler tweeted on Saturday, July 3.

The New York City general election will be on Tuesday, November 2, 2021.

  1. Congrats. If you only learn a fraction from your namesake who set the gold standard for leadership you will do ok.

    Most city pols. today before term limits did nothing or the opposite were obsessed on dogma and social engineering and identity politics and not interested in making progress for all people.

  2. The wealthy candidate who quit his deblasio crony job in 2020 whose family money comes from privatizing Canadian energy won; what a victory! Maybe you can demand radical change for the environment to make up for your family’s dirty money that has made the world worse???
