    Stephen Pierson, a Brooklyn Democratic County Committee chairman and member of Community Board 2, is described by The New York Times as looking like "modern Brooklyn" — that is, a skinny jeans-wearing, doting hipster father who also happens to be the publisher of an art journal called Canteen. On his website and in interviews, he makes it clear that he is positioning himself as a reform candidate to take on the establishment represented by longtime Brooklyn power broker Vito Lopez. Pierson is challenging incumbent Stephen Levin, who has referred to Lopez as a "mentor," for the 33rd district. --Cristian Salazar
