BOROUGH PARK - A Brooklyn teenager who fancied a job on the City Council has had his hopes dashed by the Board of Elections.

Abraham Tischler, 18, launched a bid for the 44th District City Council seat and says he spent $500 on the campaign. But Tischer's bid was challenged by David Greenfield, who is also running for the seat.

Greenfield's suit alleged the teen had invalid signatures on his petition. On Tuesday the city's Board of Elections turned down an appeal by Tischler and ended his campaign.
