Councilman Deutsch Backed by Leaders of Russian Community

BROOKLYN -

Councilman Chaim Deutsch’s first reelection campaign was endorsed by leaders of the Midwood district’s Russian-speaking community.

In a press release Monday, Deutsch announced the support of Gregory Davidzon, who owns a popular radio station, and district leaders Ari Kagan and Margarita Kagan. He faces a Democratic primary opponent, Kalman Yegar, in September.

Ari Kagan lost the Democratic primary to Deutsch in 2013.
