144th assembly seat an Irish legacy
Two Irishmen duking it out for the 144th Assembly seat Sam Hoyt vacated after he moved to a higher salaried post in the Gov. Andrew Cuomo administration, continuing the 37 year-old Irish political legacy in the district.
So it’s Democrat Sean M. Ryan against Republican Sean P. Kipp though Ryan is the favorite one among the Puerto Rican constituents in the 144th district. Yet the race would have been an interesting one if a Latino had competed as well since it’s a growing population.
