Brooklyn Senate District 18: Looking for a Landslide?

Democratic State Sen. Velmanette Montgomery faces Republican Sandra Palacios-Serrano in northern and central Brooklyn.

In 2006, Montgomery trounced another challenger by a margin of 20-to-1. She was the major sponsor of a law that makes it illegal to deny a barber or cosmetology license based on a criminal record. Little information could be found on her challenger.

According to the 32-Day Pre-General filing, Montgomery's raised $1,100 for the reporting period. A month before the election, she had about $38,700 on hand. Records for Palacios-Serrano could not be found.

District 18 stretches from Sunset Park to Ocean Hill.
