Kavanagh Seeks to End the Turnover
Nov 01, 2008
The 74th district has seen a great deal of legislative turnover in recent years. Democratic Assemblymember Steven Sanders, who had represented the district since 1978, resigned in 2006. In a special election, Democrat Sylvia Friedman won the seat. Her time in Albany proved short-lived, however, as Brian Kavanagh defeated Friedman in the 2006 Democratic primary. Kavanagh then went on to defeat his Republican opponent in the general election in November.
Now Kavanagh is seeking another term and will face Republican Bryan Cooper in the general election. Cooper is vice president of the Vincent F. Albano Republican Club and is a Republican district leader.
