Election 2012: Skelos Wins 15th Term in Senate

Democratic challenger Thomas Feffer no match for Republican favorite Dean Skelos.

Incumbent Dean Skelos, R-Rockville Centre, was re-elected to his 15th term Tuesday after defeating opponent Thomas Feffer, D-Lynbrook, in the race for 9th Senate District.

Skelos captured 60.48 percent of the total votes against the non-incumbent, Feffer.

"I'm delighted that the voters in the 9th Senate District have re-elected me to another term in the state senate," Skelos told Patch Tuesday night. "My thoughts and prayers remain with the many people that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy who continue to struggle during this very difficult time."

Skelos, the chamber’s majority leader, was first elected to state senate in 1984.

The 9th Senate District includes Rockville Centre, Cedarhurst, Lawrence, Hewlett, Inwood, Woodmere, Valley Stream, Lynbrook, East Rockaway, Long Beach, Atlantic Beach, Point Lookout, Lido Beach, Malverne and West Hempstead.

Well welfare recipients should breathe a sigh of relief as their NYS checks are safe and secure under Skelos.

the district also includes South Hempstead, which is always forgotten about on these lists.

skelos and crew are "liberal lite" - had a perfect opportunity to make real economic/fiscal reform in the state after 2010 and instead played stupid games with that silly tax cap smoke and mirror show
