Preliminary results: Salamanca Jr. wins District 17 seat
Preliminary results from Tuesday's special election project Rafael Salamanca Jr. as the winner.
Salamanca will fill the 17th District City Council seat left vacant since late December after longtime Councilwoman Maria Del Carmen Arroyo resigned.
The results of the vote still must be certified by the city Board of Elections.
The 17th District City Council seat represents Hunts Point, Port Morris, Morrisania and Crotona Park East, among other areas.
