(We’re a little late with this news, but…) Brownstone Brooklyn Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon officially threw her hat in the ring as a candidate for Borough President, making the case for herself to be the first woman to hold the office.

The pol has served in Albany’s lower chamber since 2015, representing the 52nd Assembly District that spans Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, Park Slope, Vinegar Hill, and the Columbia Street Waterfront District. -The Brooklyn Paper
