Reynoso wins Reyna’s Council seat
By Bianca Fortis

Antonio Reynoso held onto his win for the 34th City Council District race. He beat his one opponent, Gladys Santiago, when he won 95.9 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results from Associated Press. Santiago, who ran on the third party School Choice line, won 4.1 percent, based on preliminary results.

Reynoso previously bested Santiago during the Democratic primary in September. He also defeated former state Assemblyman Vito Lopez, who tried to return to political office, and Humberto Soto.

Reynoso has served as the chief of staff for the current councilwoman, Diana Reyna (D-Brooklyn) since 2009. Reyna is being term limited out. Reynoso, who hails from Williamsburg, previously worked as a community and labor organizer for child care workers.

The district includes Ridgewood, Bushwick and Williamsburg.
