Brown's candidacy was at the center of a controversy among the city's Democratic party when incumbent Councilor Mike Signer, a Democrat, donated to his campaign. The husband of Democratic Councilor Heather Hill also contributed to Brown.  The party's bylaws threatened expulsion for any member who did not support the Democratic nominee in a general election.
