Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, seen voting, secured his record sixth consecutive term as county prosecutor

Election Day was quiet in Queens with only three races on the ballot – two of which featured only a single candidate.

Both Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown and Councilmember Ruben Wills retained their seats after running unopposed in their respective elections.

Brown secured his record sixth consecutive term as county prosecutor. The D.A., who is in his 20th year on the job, ran with endorsements from his own Democratic Party, as well as the Republicans and Conservatives.

The 2,400 voters who turned out for the District 28 race had only Wills to vote for after the incumbent defeated Allan Jennings in the September Democratic Primary with over 67 percent of the vote.

Wills was first elected to the council in a special election last November after Councilmember Thomas White passed away. District 28 encompasses South Jamaica, South Ozone Park and Richmond Hill.

Twelve candidates ran for the six available Queens Supreme Court justice seats. Over 213,000 votes were tallied in the race with the six Democrats running securing victories. Democrats Janice A. Taylor of Jamaica, Allan Weiss of Forest Hills, Rudolph E. Greco Jr. of Jackson Heights, Timothy J. Dufficy of Breezy Point, Pam B. Jackson-Brown of Jamaica and Ira H. Margulis of Oakland Gardens each received over 9 percent of the vote.

The results of the elections remain preliminary while a complete recanvass of all voting machines and the counting of all valid absentee, affidavit, and military ballots before the election results can be certified.
