The 23rd Senate District includes two boroughs, encompassing the north shore of Staten Island as well as parts of southwestern Brooklyn. Democrat Diane J. Savino was elected to represent the district when the seat became vacant in 2004. Savino won nearly twice as many votes as her Republican opponent in the 2004 race and ran unopposed in 2006.

A former city child-welfare caseworker, Savino became active in her union, rising to a leadership post. Now in the Senate Savino, who has been endorsed by the Working Families Party, said she continues to focus on employee's rights and the poor.
