The New York primary election is happening today, and my friend Melissa Sklarz is trying to make more history in the Empire State by becoming the first out trans person elected to the New York State Assembly
She’s running for the 30th Assembly District;s Democratic party nomination against freshman incumbent Assemblyman Brian Barnwell, who knocked off a longtime incumbent himself in 2016.
Here’s hoping that when the polls close in New York state, we hear some good news this evening.
Good luck, Melissa!
TransGriot Update: Unfortunately it didn’t work out for Melissa last night. Assemblyman Barnwell captured the Democratic nomination for the 30th Assembly District seat
