Incumbent Brian Curran, R-Lynbrook, was re-elected to his second term Tuesday after defeating opponent Jeff Friedman, D-Rockville Centre, in the race for 21st Assembly District.
Curran captured 54.07 percent of the total vote against the non-incumbent, Friedman.
"Even as our community starts to recover from Hurricane Sandy, I'm humbled the the support I received at the polls," Curran told Patch early Wednesday morning. "I'm looking forward to continuing my work in Albany to reform LIPA, create jobs, stimulate our economy and make our communities affordable and safe for our working families and seniors. My family joins me in truly thanking our neighbors."
Curran served the town of Lynbrook as its mayor from 2007 until his election to the 14th District -- now the 21st District -- in the the New York State Assembly in 2010.Candidates Votes % Precincts Reported Curran 24,198 54.07 Friedman 20,544 45.90
