Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez
Wins Primary Race State Senate District 34

Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez won her primary election campaign for the open State Senate District 34 seat. Nathalia’s labor-backed campaign received well over 62% of the vote with over 84.62% reporting in the Bronx and Westchester. In response, Nathalia released the following statement: 


“We celebrate a victory for the people of the Bronx and Westchester. I’m proud of the campaign we have run and the coalition we built together – and to my future constituents, I hope this victory makes you feel heard, represented, and understood. 


“Now more than ever, we need legislators that are responsive to the direct needs of their constituents and aren’t afraid to have those difficult conversations. That’s why we stood on every street corner from Soundview to Pelham, engaging directly with thousands of voters and listening to the needs of the community. We reached every neighborhood that makes up the incredibly diverse fabric of District 34. 


“From here, I will work tirelessly to bring resilient climate infrastructure, accessible and affordable public transportation and better job opportunities to the 34th district. 


“Our campaign presented solutions for some of the biggest issues facing The Bronx and Westchester, from climate resilience and transportation to small business and quality of life. We built a coalition of political and labor support in service of the working people of this district. As a result, the movement we built together felt excitement grow every day about our shared vision for a 34th District where our families can thrive for generations to come. 


“This is about so much more than one campaign, or winning one seat: it’s about keeping responsive leadership in Albany to fight for State Senate District 34. This victory belongs to all of us.”
