Brooklyn is bursting at the seams with political power. The current mayor – and all but certainly the next mayor – hail from the borough. So too does the majority leader of the U.S. Senate and, perhaps, the next speaker of the House of Representatives. Brooklyn is also home to the state attorney general, a couple more influential members of Congress, the city’s public advocate, its next comptroller and several significant City Council members. Add it all up, and the borough has a strong claim as the political epicenter of New York, if not nationally.
