Unofficial results from the Associated Press showed Avella, a Democrat who has run unsuccessfully for the seat twice before, had won City Councilman Mike Abel's (R-Bayside) post by about 350 votes.

Avella's win means the Queens Republican Party has lost two of its three Republican city council seats. Queens had three of the six Republicans in the 51-member council before Tuesday's election, but this week the seat held by Councilman Alfonso Stabile (R-Ozone Park) also was captured by a Democrat.

At least two other former Democrats on the ballot in the 19th Council District drew votes away from Avella in the close race. Civic civic leader Jerry Iannece, running as a Liberal, got 2 percent and labor leader Arthur Cheliotes, represented by the Working Families Party, received 2 percent, according to the preliminary results.


The following is a list of results for Queens races, based on an unofficial tabulation by the Association Press. Term-limited incumbents appear in parentheses.
