Election night contests concluded with no surprises. Melinda Katz retained her Queens District Attorney position, Justices of the Supreme Court 11th Judicial District went to Cassandra A. Johnson, Karen Lin, Peter J. Kelly, Far Rockaway's Scott Dunn, and Jessica Earle-Gargan. Vickie Paladino's hard on crime and accountability strategies allowed her to keep her City Council seat. Sandra Ung, Tiffany L. Caban, Linda Lee, James F. Gennaro, Julie Won, Nantasha M. Williams, Speaker Adrienne E. Adams, Lynn C. Schulman, Selvena N. Brooks-Powers, and Jennifer Gutierrez all wiped out their competitors. Evelyn Gong more narrowly defeated William David Shanahan for Judge of the Civil Court - District 6th Municipal Court District.
