Certified Election Results Show Ulrich Victory By Nearly 1,000
Eric Ulrich, the new 32nd District City Councilmember, has been sworn in, the election results are now final, and it is time to see for whom Rockaway residents of the district voted in last month's special election.
The following numbers are provided by the New York City Board of Elections and show a larger victory for Ulrich over Lew Simon than was originally reported. Simon received only 375 votes on the mainland, landing 85 percent of his votes from Rockaway and Broad Channel. Only about 32 percent of Ulrich's votes came from Rockaway and Broad Channel. More specifically, the majority of those votes came from the Breezy Point and Neponsit/Belle Harbor area. This left Ulrich with a landslide victory on the mainland.
