Voters in a diverse Brooklyn City Council district are choosing a new representative.

The election Tuesday will pick a replacement for Simcha Felder, the popular councilman who left to join the city comptroller's office.

The district includes Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods as well as Italian, Chinese and Russian enclaves.

One of the top two candidates is Joe Lazar. The son of Holocaust survivors has served on his local community board. He's also worked for the city buildings department and state Office of Mental Health.

The other is David Greenfield, an attorney and director of TEACH NYS, an education advocacy group.

A third candidate, Republican Kenneth Rice, is an attorney for the New York Police Department.
