Thank You!

On Tuesday night, after all the votes were counted, I was gratified to learn that the people of the Tenth Assembly District placed their trust in me to succeed my friend and mentor, Assemblyman James D. Conte.

I am truly overwhelmed by the support I received and grateful for the opportunity to represent the district where I have lived my entire life.  It was rewarding to learn that my positive message focusing on the most pressing issues resonated with the voters.

These are truly extraordinary and difficult times.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there remains a tremendous amount of work to rebuild Long Island.  I look forward to being able to help the residents affected by the storm.  In addition to recovering from the storm, there is much work to be done to jump-start the economy and ensure that Long Island’s schools remain exceptional.

In closing, I would like to thank everyone who supported me during the past three eventful months.  Whether your support was in the form of a vote, a donation, distribution of literature, or displaying a lawn sign at your home or business, it is greatly appreciated.  To those who did not support me, please know that I will work tirelessly, with leaders in all parties, to address the issues that matter to you.

Chad Lupinacci, the Republican, Conservative, Independence, and Working Families Party candidate for the New York State Assembly, 10th District, today reacted to the passing of Assemblyman James D. Conte.

“The passing of Assemblyman James Conte this morning is a tremendous loss for all of those who were fortunate to know him and for the entire 10th Assembly District that he represented with great pride and distinction for over twenty four faithful years.

I was proud to call Jim my mentor and more importantly my friend for the past twelve years. It was my internship with his office that inspired my love for politics and public service; he treated me with far more respect than an intern can expect.

Jim was an example for all politicians to live by. He did not separate his values from his work. He showed that you can be a dedicated public servant, a loving husband and father, and a kind and honorable man. Jim’s spirit and influence will live on through all of those whom he had touched. He will be greatly missed by all.”
