The Queens Courier recently reported on the November 8th elections in Queens, New York.
With only three races on the ballot, two of which featured only a single candidate, Election Day 2011 was quiet in Queens.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown and Councilmember Ruben Wills ran unopposed in their respective elections.
Richard A. Brown secured “his sixth consecutive term as county prosecutor. The D.A., who is in his 20th year on the job, ran with endorsements from his own Democratic Party, as well as the Republicans and Conservatives,” (QueensCourier).
Ruben Wills defeated Allan Jennings in the District 28 September Democratic Primary with over 67% of the vote, securing his seat. “Wills was first elected to the council in a special election last November after Councilmember Thomas White passed away,” (Queens Courier). District 28 includes South Jamaica, South Ozone Park and Richmond Hill.
The third race for the six available Queens Supreme Court Justice seats had twelve candidates. The six Democrats who ran secured the votes. “Democrats 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 received over 9% of the vote,” (Queens Courier).
These are all preliminary results, as a complete re-canvass of all voting machines and the counting of all valid absentee, affidavit and military ballots need to be completed before the election results can be certified, reports the QueensCourier.
