A Familiar Contest in Bushwick


Incumbent Darryl Towns on the Democratic and Working Families lines faces Republican/Conservative Khorshed Chowdhury.

Towns was elected in 1992. During his tenure he has attempted to spur commercial revitalization in his district, which includes parts of Williamsburg, Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant. Towns, the son of longtime U.S. Rep. Edolphus Towns, chairs the Committee on Banks.

Chowdhury, a native of Bangladesh, has unsuccessfully challenged Towns in 2002, 2004 and in 2006.

In 2006, Towns received 92 percent of the vote.

In the times leading up to the 32 Day Pre-General filing report, Towns had no campaign contributions. He ended the period with $13,642. Chowdhury reported "no activity."
