Today’s news:

Ulrich re-elected to first full term

Incumbent Republican Eric Ulrich, 24, won his first full term on the City Council Tuesday night with 58.11 percent, or 10,167 votes, handily beating Democrat Frank Gulluscio, 60, who received 41.89 percent, or 7,330 votes.

Voters chose to return Ulrich, the youngest sitting council member, to his seat, which was one of only three held by Republicans before the election. Ulrich campaigned largely on the results he has brought to the region since he was voted into office in the February special election to fill the seat vacated by Joseph Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach), who was elected to the state Senate seat.

Democrat Karen Koslowitz won the race for Councilwoman Melinda Katz’s (D-Forest Hills) seat, defeating Lynn Schulman, a registered Democrat who ran on the Working Family Party line, and Republican Bartholomew Bruno.

A former councilwoman who represented District 29, Koslowitz received 63.55 percent, or 11,131 votes.
