Didi Barrett made the following statement in regards to her apparent win.
“The Mid-Hudson Valley needs a representative in Albany to fight for issues important to middle class families – we need tax relief, good paying local jobs and a voice to make sure our needs are heard above the special interests.
Today, my opponent conceded in the Special Election for the 103rd Assembly District seat, and I want to thank Rich Wager for a hard fought race. But, the counting of ballots is not yet complete, and every vote needs to be counted because every voter’s choice is important. However, I remain confident that I will be the next representative for the 103rd in the Assembly, and look forward to getting to work.”
