Greenfield And Hikind Detente At Census Photo Op

04/07/2010

After a heated campaign in which Assemblyman Dov Hikind opposed the candidacy of Councilman David Greenfield, the two officials joined forces on Wednesday to fill out their census forms at a press conference in their Borough Park district.

The event was to encourage residents to submit their information to the Census Bureau so that their communities will maintain political clout and funding.

“We are both committed to making the residents of Brooklyn our No. 1 priority,” Hikind told the Orthodox blog Vos Iz Neias.

David Greenfield’s victory Tuesday by a wide margin in a special election for a heavily Jewish Brooklyn City Council district could be a sign of generational shift in local ethnic politics, observers say.

Greenfield, 31, defeated Joseph Lazar, 61, by more than 2,000 votes out of about 12,000 cast in a race many expected to be tight. The two men, both Orthodox Jews, had heavy backing from local political figures in the community and the wider region.

As they toured the heavily Jewish summer vacation areas of the Catskills Sunday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Councilman Simcha Felder appeared as they usually do — good friends with common interests. They have developed a strong rapport over the years, with Felder, who represents Borough Park, often accompanying the mayor not only to Jewish events and areas in the city but to Israel and upstate. Felder campaigned strongly for Bloomberg’s 2005 re-election, and is on board for the mayor’s third bid.

After enduring a scathing campaign against him in the press and on the streets of the Lower East Side, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver easily survived a primary challenge, his first in over 20 years, by two political novices on Tuesday, while another veteran legislator, state Sen. Martin Connor, lost the Democratic Senate nomination in Brooklyn to a challenger backed by U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer. The victor of that primary, Daniel Squadron, is a former Schumer staffer and transportation advocate who was also backed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
