Brad Lander wins NYC comptroller race

City Councilman Brad Lander will be the next city inspector to beat his opponents in Tuesday’s election in a landslide.

The Democrat had more than 77 percent of the vote, while Republican longshot Daby Carreras only achieved 16 percent with 17.89 percent of the scanners reporting, showing preliminary results from the election committee.

The local cable channel NY1 called for the race around 9.20pm.

The left-wing lawmaker’s expected victory in parliament comes after he disrupted Council President Corey Johnson in June’s Democratic primary.

Lander, 52, will take over in January for current Comptroller Scott Stringer. Inspectors approve city contracts, manage city pension funds, and audit city agencies.

He currently represents Park Slope, Gowanus and the surrounding neighborhoods of the City Council, where he is part of the body’s progressive caucus.
