100th AD race could be settled before Christmas

GOSHEN – The race for the 100th District Assembly seat will likely be resolved before Christmas.

At present, challenge Republican Thomas Kirwan of Newburgh is ahead of incumbent Democrat Frank Skartados of Milton by 64 votes with 119 ballots remaining.

State Supreme Court Justice Victor Alfieri is expected to announce his decision Tuesday on which ballots may be opened and counted. Those will be tallied on Wednesday with the final results expected then.

The district includes portions of Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties. Kirwan represented the district until two years ago when Skartados unseated him.
