Garbarino's additional party voting lines helped cement the win for 27-year-old and kept a Republican in the seat. Garbarino held the Conservative, Independence and Main Street ballot lines. He garnered 20,155 Republican votes, 4,272 Conservative Party votes, 1,277 Independence Party votes and 220 Main Street Party votes with 99 of 102 precincts reported.

The Assembly seat was held for six years by Republican Phil Boyle who decided to run for the 4th District Senate seat of Owen Johnson who is retiring.

Bodkin is a former Islip Town councilman and serves as a legislative aide to Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer William Lindsay.

While I abhor your ageist viewpoint, I agree in offering congratulations to Mr. Garbarino. His victory is a welcomed ray of light in an otherwise gloomy election.

Andrew - congrats on taking over the representation of Patchogue Village. I am sure all agree it was your attendance at our Chamber of Commerce Saint Liberata Festival that stirred the electorate to your support. We hope to see you regularly to help keep Patchogue on the go.
