Brooklyn – Lincoln Restler Brings Out the Troops

Colin Campbell Reports: The district leader position might be unpaid and little-noticed, but Lincoln Restler continued to prove it can be transformed into a noticeable political force this afternoon. Mr. Restler, fighting for reelection against county Democratic Party-backed Chris Olechowski, managed to muscle out a whole host of notable elected officials to endorse him on the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall, including Borough President Marty Markowitz, Congressional Members Nydia Velázquez and Jerry Nadler, and multiple politicians from every level of legislative office.

Each elected official proceeded to march to the podium and praise Mr. Restler, describing him with such terms as “energizer bunny,” “rock star,” and “breath of fresh air,” but it was perhaps State Senator Eric Adams — an ally of the county Democrats and the most surprising guest in attendance — who was the most effusive.
