NYC: Democratic candidates for new City Council seat in Brooklyn stake out centrist stances

All three Democrats running for the new City Council seat in southern Brooklyn have said they would not join the Progressive Caucus, if elected.

They have stressed the stance at candidate forums and in interviews with NY1.

“I support police, I support law enforcement; that’s a value they don’t believe in,” Susan Zhuang said at a recent Asian Wave Alliance-hosted forum.

“I will not join them based on that one piece alone, which is defunding the police,” Stanley Ng said at the same event.

“I believe people are not really comfortable with the ‘defund the NYPD’ thing,” Wai Yee Chan told NY1. She did not attend the forum.

Chan, Ng and Zhuang have been trying to out-centrist each other in what appears to be a neck-neck-and-neck race in Council District 43.

The newly drawn so-called Asian opportunity seat includes parts of Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights and Sunset Park.
