Local BK races could shake up leadership

Though most Brooklyn residents are familiar with the mayoral race taking place Tuesday, there are also several local races that could shake up borough leadership.

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz is running for a third term against GOP challenger Marc D'Ottavio and Libertarian Michael Sanchez.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn Councilman Bill de Blasio is running for public advocate after receiving the Democratic nomination Sept. 29. De Blasio will face former Public Advocate Mark Green, of the Republican Party.

Voters in District 39 have a full ballot of choices with Bradford Lander running for the Democratic and Working Families parties against Republican Joe Nardiello, Conservative George Smith, the Green Party's David Pechefsky and Libertarian Roger Sarrabo for City Council.

Incumbent Councilman Kendall B. Stewart is also running as an Independent for the 45th Council District against Democrat Jumaane Williams and Republican Salvatore Grupico.
