term in Albany Tuesday with a convincing win against Democratic
challenger John Brooks of Seaford.
McDonough received 62.92 percent of the vote, 27,693 to 16,309. McDonough also defeated Brooks, an active civic leader in Seaford, two years ago.
McDonough is Chairman of the Assembly Minority Task Force on Public
Safety and is the ranking minority member on the Assembly Transportation
Committee. He also serves on the Assembly Health, Education, Veterans’
Affairs and Consumer Affairs committees.

Merrick, and portions of Levittown, East Meadow, North Bellmore, North
Merrick, Freeport and Baldwin.
