After two months of voter recounts by the NY State Board of Elections and due diligence review by our courts, the long time incumbent, Republican Frank Padavan was declared the winner of the 11th Senate District.
Now it has come to our attention that the Democratic majority in the NY State Senate is trying to block the seating of our duly elected Senator. Needless to say, I am appalled that they would stoop so low as to deny the seating of a senior Senator who been declared the winner and who has served his state and community with honor and distinction for 35 years. I am also shocked that politicians from both sides of the aisle have not rallied to support Senator Padavan's as he has often supported their initiatives.
