Citizens Union

Longtime Incumbent Seeks Two More Years


Assemblymember Keith L. T. Wright is running for re-election for the seat he has held since 1992. The Harlem Democrat, who also will appear in the Working Families Party line, is perhaps best known for proposing legislation to raise awareness of New York's history of slavery. He introduced a bill last year that included an official apology from New York State for the slavery in the state. Republican candidate is available about his Republican challenger, Rueben D. Riley Sr.

Wright's 32 Day Pre-General campaign finance filing showed he had collected $18,159 in the reporting period and ended it with $24,287 on hand. Riley has not filed any campaign finance reports.
