Weprin, Lancman claim local councilman spots

In city council district 23, incumbent Democrat Mark Weprin swept Reform Party challenger Joseph Concoon with his hefty resume, stronger party ties and more austere political awareness.

Weprin cited his accomplishments including the Workplace Religious Freedom Act and his involvement with Autism as reasons for him to stay in his position, his campaign site says.

Voters in neighboring district 24 saw Democrat Rory Lancman defeat  Republican Alex Blishteyn. Traditionally a Democratic district, Lancman didn’t rest on his laurels, partnering with local labor unions and political organizations, establishing himself as a member of the community.
