A Look At The 12th City Council Race by City and State

District Data


City Council District 12, in the northeast Bronx, covering neighborhoods including Baychester, Co-op City and Wakefield

Current council member: Nobody, because Andy King was expelled from the council in October

2010 census demographics: 67% Black, 25% Hispanic, 4% white, 1.5% Asian

Housing: 62.6% renter-occupied, 37.4% owner-occupied

2013 primary election results: King: 57.4%, Pamela Johnson: 32.6%, Lenford Edie: 5%, Adeyemi LaCrown Oloruntoba: 5%

2017 primary election results: King: 68.2%, Pamela Johnson: 32.1%, Karee-Lyn Gordon: 4.4%

Who’s running: For the Dec. 22 special election, Pamela Johnson, Neville Mitchell and Kevin Riley are running. Johnson and Mitchell have run unsuccessfully before, and although Riley is a first-time candidate, he’s the odds-on favorite. He’s very close to Bronx power broker Carl Heastie, and already has 10 union endorsements, which will be huge in this low turnout winter special election in a labor-heavy area.
