There was a shakeup in Brooklyn politics last month with Walter Mosley, Tremaine Wright and Felix Ortiz, all considered “machine candidates”, losing their races to candidates who are new on the scene, Phara Souffrant Forrest, a nurse from Crown Heights defeated 4 term incumbent Mosley to win the 57th District Assembly seat, Marcela Mitaynes beat 13-term Assembly Member Félix Ortiz for the 51st District seat in Sunset Park and Red Hook, and Jabari Brisport defeated Tremaine Wright to win the State Senate race for Brooklyn’s 25th District.
