As previously reported, Rebecca Seawright won the NY State Assembly 76 District Democratic Party Primary nomination to represent Roosevelt Island and the Upper East Side last Tuesday. Yesterday, Ms Seawright returned to Roosevelt Island with one of her supporters, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. Congresswoman Maloney tweets:

Ms Seawright adds:
I am deeply grateful for the extraordinary support of the voters of Roosevelt Island in the September 9th Democratic Primary. I heard the concerns and priorities of our neighbors and am very much inspired by all those who helped with my candidacy. We will continue fighting for the improvements needed from all levels of government that should be a matter of right for our community. From enhanced transportation options to the reform of governance to assistance to our small businesses. We will continue fighting for the needed resources and to assure that development of the new Cornell/Technion complex brings genuine benefits to the residents of Roosevelt Island. And we must ensure the highest voter turnout possible in the November general election so that Roosevelt Island receives the support it so richly deserves.
According to the NYC Board of Elections, the Roosevelt Island voting results for the 76 Assembly District ( Election Districts 82-87) were:
  • Rebecca Seawright - 225
  • Gus Christensen - 136
  • Ed Hartzog -72
  • David Menegon  - 58
Ms. Seawright will face Republican David Garland in the November General Election.
