Lee Zeldin Gives A Concession Statement 

I would like to congratulate New York Governor Kathy Hochul on her election to a full four year term. This race was a once in a generation campaign, with a very close margin in the bluest of blue states. The unrelenting passion and hard work of our grassroots volunteers and supporters made this incredibly close race possible and helped us win at least 49 of New York’s 62 counties. Republicans, Democrats and Independents united as New Yorkers, pouring their heart and soul into this campaign.  Those controlling Albany should take note. New Yorkers of all walks of life are sick of the attacks on their wallets, their safety, their freedoms and the quality of their kids’ education and are hitting their breaking point, as proven by these results. As they take office in January, Governor Kathy Hochul and those controlling Albany must address the grave concerns voiced by the voters. While this campaign has come to a close, the rescue mission to Save Our State continues.


How Did The Steuben County Propositions Do?

On the propositions on the back of the ballot for steuben county voters, the new York state prop about environmental issues, there were 17, 702 no votes, and 14,411 YES votes on the state prop.  That statewide prop about environmental issues has still not yet been fully counted, there are over 1,000 districts that still are not in yet.   On the countywide proposition for redistricting there were 19,363 NO votes,  there were 11, 919 YES votes on the redistricting prop.  So the county redistricting prop, has failed.    Regarding the town of Caton vote, on changing the highway superintendents job to becoming an appointed job, 596 no votes, 290 yes votes.  On the town of Pulteney’s library prop, 295 yes votes, 138 no votes, and in Jasper, the vote to be able to sell alcohol, 404 yes votes, 176 no votes.
