Brooklyn Senate District 27: Brighton Beach's $1.8 Million Man

by Gotham Gazette Staff, Oct 27, 2008

Longtime incumbent Carl Kruger will face Vyacheslav Patrin next week. Kruger joined the State Senate in 1994, and became the first democratic and minority member to chair a committee - the Senate Committee on Social Services, Children and Families.

Information on his Conservative Party challenger could not be found.

Despite facing seemingly token opposition, Kruger's campaign reported having more than $1.8 million on hand in his 32-Day Pre-General filing. Figures for Patrin were not available.

The district is located in southeastern Brooklyn, and includes Brighton Beach and Flatlands.
