With 57 out of 90 precincts reporting, Democrat Phil Goldfeder has defeated Republican Jane Deacy for the Assembly seat from the 23rd district in the Rockaways. Goldfeder has 61 percent of the vote to Deacy’s 39 percent.
Goldfeder, who, though only 30 has already worked for Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Charles Schumer and two City Council members, was heavily favored for the seat formerly held by Audrey Pheffer, who resigned to become Queens County clerk. He trounced Deacy in the fundraising race and had support from Pheffer. Despite that, Deacy, a former police officer, ran a spirited campaign.By Gail Robinson on September 13, 2011, 11:29 pm
