“With Assemblymember Richardson heading to Brooklyn Borough Hall, I am declaring a special election to fill this vacancy and ensure representation for the residents of the 43rd Assembly District,” Hochul said. “Central Brooklyn has been exceptionally well-served by Assemblymember Richardson and the entire borough will be better off for having her in Borough Hall.
