Staten Island 61st Assembly District: Titone Tries for a Full Term


Democratic and Working Families Party candidate Matthew Titone is running for re-election for the Assembly seat he has held for less than one term. A special election for the district was called in March 2007 after the incumbent Assembly member, Democrat John Lavelle, died while in office. Titone won the special election, capturing nearly half the vote in a three-person field.

This is Independence Party Rose Margarella's third try for the seat. She ran as a Republican against Titone in 2007 and against Lavelle in 2006. Titone also has a Republican opponent - Thomas W. McGinley. Little information is available about him.

At the end of the 32 Day Pre-General filing period Titone's campaign had $6,488 on hand campaign.

At last report, Titone had $8,000 in campaign funds available, McGinley had $2,080, and Margarella had filed a no activity statement.
