Brooklyn Senate District 20: Adams Seeks Re-election

by Gotham Gazette Staff, Oct 27, 2008
 

Democratic State Sen. Eric Adams will defends his Brooklyn-based seat against Republican challenger Stephen Christopher.

Adams, who was first overwhelmingly elected in 2006, is a former New York City police officer and co-founder of One Hundred Blacks in Law Enforcement. A major issue of his candidacy is bridging the gap between the community and law enforcement. Little information could be found on his opponent.

According to his 32-Day Pre General filing, Adams raised $27,560 in contributions in the reporting period, but apparently spent much of it, ending September with about $16,180 on hand. Figures for Christopher were not available.

The 20th district includes Crown Heights, Wingate, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Windsor Terrace, and parts of Park Slope. Figures for Christopher were not available.
