PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY WARNING!
Brooklyn, NY — The most common
method your doctor will recommend to treat
your neuropathy is with prescription drugs
that may temporarily reduce your symptoms.
These drugs have names such as Gabapentin,
Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are
primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure
drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel
uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful
Peripheral neuropathy is a
result of damage to the nerves!

State Supreme Court Justice Rosemarie
Montalbano resoundingly defeated
Civil Court Judge Dweynie Esther Paul
in the race for Kings County Surrogate
Court Judge, handing a victory to reformers
over the county party in a race
that, in some ways, came to be a referendum
on political patronage.
As of Wednesday morning, Montalbano
held a 25 point lead over Paul, per
the city Board of Elections, 62.2 percent
to 37.25 percent, with nearly 97 percent of
precincts reporting. Since judicial races
are under the purview of state election
law, ranked-choice voting was not in effect
(though it wouldn’t have been in
play anyway, since there were only two
candidates), so Montalbano declared victory
“I am extremely honored that I was
overwhelmingly chosen by the people of
Brooklyn to serve as one of their Surrogate
Court judges,” Montalbano said in
a statement. “It’s extremely encouraging
that my message of fairness and reform
resonated with so many ethnic, geographic,
and ideological lines. I believe
that honesty, integrity, and fairness are
values that we all share. This is why I
will approach the position of Surrogate
with a diligent work ethic, and the utmost
commitment to the people of Kings
County who have entrusted me to serve
them. As long as I serve in the offi ce, in
that capacity, I will do all in my power to
make them proud.”
The Surrogate Court, which handles
wills and estates, has historically been
something of a haven for political patronage,
owing to the Surrogate’s ability to
name both the “Public Administrator,”
a plum position that administers the estates
of those who die without wills, and
the PA’s counsel. These roles have historically
often gone to those with connections
to the county party.
One of the key differences between
Montalbano and Paul was their position
on the PA: Montalbano supports a bill in
Albany to move appointment power for
the PA from the Surrogate to the mayor, in
an effort to limit patronage in the court.
Paul does not support the measure.
Brooklyn Surrogate Court has also
been marked by rampant dysfunction
and infi ghting. The other judge on the
Surrogate bench, Harriet Thompson,
has feuded with PA Richard Buckheit for
years; a recent audit by City Comptroller
Scott Stringer found “signifi cant weaknesses
affecting the KCPA’s management
structure and operating practices
related to the administration of estates.”
Paul was the pick of the county party,
and Chair Rodneyse Bichotte, who is
close with Paul, pushed hard for her
While the Surrogate race was a romp
for Montalbano, other judicial races
in Brooklyn are down to the wire. In
countywide Civil Court, Inga O’Neale is
leading Casilda Roper-Simpson by only
2,090 votes, 36.45 percent to 35.52 percent
as of Wednesday morning. A very tight
three-way race is also taking place in
Municipal Civil Court District 2, which
includes parts of Bedford-Stuyvesant
and Crown Heights: DC37 staff attorney
Lisa Lewis leads with 35.93 percent, followed
closely by public defender Marva
Brown with 33.54 percent and law clerk
Lola Waterman with 30.2 percent.
In Municipal District 7, covering
parts of Bushwick and East New York,
attorney Keisha Alleyne beat fellow attorney
Carmen Pacheco by a substantial
margin, 65.82 percent to 33.82 percent.
In a statement, Montalbano’s senior
advisor congratulated the candidate on
her “historic victory.”
“Never let anyone tell you what you
can or can not accomplish,” said Musa
Moore. “Team Montalbano, we did it.”
Paul’s campaign did not respond to a
request for comment by press time.

plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
nerves and provide them with the proper
nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding

deeper and deeper.
