Queens 12th Senate District: 25 Years in Albany


Longtime incumbent State Sen. George Onorato will face Republican challenger Thomas Dooley, who will also appear on the Conservative and Independence party line.

Onorato has been in the State Senate since 1983 and serves as vice chair of the Minority Conference. His latest campaign finance filings show he has $216,017. In the last filing period, Onorato spent $95,337, the majority of which went to two Democratic fundraisers.

Campaign finance information was not available for Dooley. Dooley is a retired city firefighter and former U.S. Marine. At a recent forum, he criticized the development sweeping through the neighborhood.

The district includes Astoria and parts of Sunnyside and Long Island City.
