Fordham Law alumnus Thomas Suozzi ’89 won election in New York’s 3rd Congressional District, as mentioned in an Observer article.
Suozzi declared victory around 11:45 in Jericho, Long Island, besting Republican State Sen. Jack Martins.
Suozzi’s win marks the first time since 2009 that he has held an elected position. He served four two-year terms as the mayor of his native Glen Cove from 1992 to 2000. Then, in 2001, Suozzi won his first of two terms as Nassau County executive, giving him strong name recognition across the suburban county.
