Challenging the Party Chief


Republican Challenger Frances Cutrone faces a daunting task as the Republican takes on Democratic Assemblymember Vito Lopez, who also heads Brooklyn's Democratic party.

Information could not be found on Cutrone.

Lopez joined the Assembly in 1984. He chairs the Committee on Housing, where he rewrote the state's 421-a tax exemption program, which is supposed to spark the development of affordable apartments. Some say the bill favored the controversial development Atlantic Yards.

Lopez who took in $70.768 in the period covered by the 32 Day Pre-General filing report had almost $980,000 on hand. There was no filing information on Cutrone.

District 53 includes Bushwick and Williamsburg.
