Eugene vs. Sharpe, Again

Mathieu Eugene isn’t the only candidate from the first special election in Brooklyn’s 40th Council District to enter the second special election in that district.

Wellington Sharpe, who had a modest results earlier, confirmed he’s running again. And this time, he said he’ll have the support of one-time Yvette Clarke staffer Nancy Ramos, who’ll be in some kind of managerial position.

The second-place finisher, Jennifer James, is expected to make a statement about the race later today.

There are grumblings that other candidates from that first race may jump into this special, special election.

Candidates have until March 21 to file petitions in order to appear on the ballot.
