Greenpoint Activist eager to unseat incumbent lentol
Emily Gallagher, who is a 35-year-old Greenpoint activist, has been tackling hyper-local issues like bike safety and the 94th Precinct’s response to sexual violence. She lost by 344 votes when she ran for district leader in 2016. At the beginning of this year, she suggested that the board should use special City Council funds for a service that will track constituent issues. The board, however, bought an SUV instead. She said in a statement that she choose the battles for which an activist will battle. Now she is up for a longshot primary campaign to unseat Democratic Assemblymember Joe Lentol, who is third-generation lawmaker and has represented Greenpoint for the last 47 years. His grandfather and father also served assembly. Together the family has served northern Brooklyn in the state Legislature for most of the previous century. Gallagher is the only second person in history to challenge a Lentol in a primary. The previous challenge he faced was in 2010, which Lentol won by 81% vote share.
