The City Council race in North Brooklyn has been a heated one since current Councilman Stephen Levin was faced with a challenger in Stephen Pierson back in late April.

On one side you have Levin, a seasoned politician who has been on the street fighting for the borough for nearly four years, and on the other is a newcomer to the political sphere with a record of public service through the foundation he started and two years of experience on Community Board 2.

Pierson has made a point of tying Levin to a career of corruption due to the time he worked in the office of former assemblyman Vito Lopez, however we feel Levin’s ties to his old boss are truly cut.

It is clear that both candidates care immensely about the district. And it is certain that whoever is elected to the seat would focus on preserving the environment, tackle the fight for affordable housing at the Domino site and elsewhere, and focus on improving the education system.

We at the Star are confident that Levin is in fact working for the communities of Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Boerum Hill and his home of Greenpoint, and has the dedication the borough needs to make things happen.

Most of all, Levin knows what it takes to fight for the district at City Hall and will continue to do so in his second term. In our opinion, we believe Levin is the best candidate for the 33rd District.
