Analyzing Eugene’s Win

An informed reader emailed over a rough breakdown of the results of Tuesday’s special Council election in Brooklyn.

It turns out that Mathieu Eugene’s union-backed victory was just as thorough as the overall numbers indicated. He was the top vote-getter in nearly all of the Assembly districts that lie at least partly within the Council district.

The only one he lost was the 44th Assembly District in Park Slope.

A more detailed analysis should be ready by Friday when the city’s Board of Elections finalize the results. But here, according to my source, is how the order of finish broke down:

42nd Assembly District – Flatbush, Midwood
Mathieu Eugene (almost 50 percent)
Jennifer James
Wellington Sharpe
Richie Leithland

43rd Assembly District – Crown Heights/Flatbush
Mathieu Eugene
Jennifer James
Wellington Sharpe
Jesse Hamilton

44th Assembly District – Park Slope
Harry Schiffman
Moe Ravzi
Joel Toney
Mathieu Eugene

57th and 58th Assembly Districts – Clinton Hill, Brownsville
Mathieu Eugene
Wellington Sharpe
Jennifer James/Jesse Hamilton (close 3/4th)
