You’ve probably heard of Justin Brannan around the neighborhood. He helps residents cut through red tape to make the government work. Justin is running for the open City Council seat in the 43rd District representing Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach and parts of Bensonhurst so he can keep fighting for the middle-class and those living paycheck to paycheck.

Justin grew up in the shadow of the Verrazzano Bridge and has always called this community home. This is where he and his wife, Leigh own a small business and where his mom, Mary, has been an educator for over 30 years. Helping others is his passion and with your support, he hopes to continue doing that in an official capacity as your next councilmember.

I've known Justin for almost 25 years, and am proud to have photographed him for his current campaign. Please take a moment to visit to see what he's about and how he can help our community.
