Council Candidates Wait it Out
September 21st, 2009

While some focus on the two runoff elections for comptroller and public advocate, there are still a number of City Council races that could turn around once the official vote tally is in.

Initially the city Board of Elections expected official returns tomorrow. Earlier this morning, Valerie Vazquez-Rivera of the Board of Elections said they could have some results tomorrow, but it wasn’t looking as likely.

That leaves a number of candidates, like Maria Baez and Fernando Cabrera in the Bronx, on the edge of their seats.

Lynn Nunes, a candidate who says he is five votes shy of kicking out incumbent Councilmember Thomas White Jr. in Queens, is also one of those candidates.

“Now there is a five vote spread with ballots still coming in,” said Nunes via phone this morning. “We’re following still very closely, and I guess we’ll see what happens.”

Stay tuned for updates.
