State Senator Tom O’Mara easily won re-election to the 58th Senate District, defeating newcomer Amanda Kirchgessner 58-38%.
“I deeply appreciate this vote of confidence and support from the voters of the 58th Senate District. We had a full discussion of the key challenges, crises, and issues facing the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions – from agriculture to manufacturing, from education to transportation, and from job creation to tax relief – and I’m grateful to the voters for responding so positively and strongly to the case we build on the foundation of my commitment, experience, and record. It’s a great honor to continue representing the 58th District, and a great responsibility. I look forward to continuing the work we’ve started.”
The 58th Senate District O’Mara has represented since first being elected to the Senate in 2010 encompasses all of Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and a portion of Tompkins County (the city and town of Ithaca, and the towns of Enfield, Newfield and Ulysses).
