A first-time candidate, Woolf lost by 20 points and Stefanik became the youngest woman elected to the U.S. House.  In an e-mail blast to supporters this morning, Woolf announced he will not run again in 2016.  But he tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley he will stay involved and is leaving the door open for a possible future campaign.

The second largest state employees union in New York will have a new president this summer. The rank-and-file membership of the Public Employees Federation recently elected Wayne Spence as the union president. Spence, a 24-year veteran parole officer with the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, defeated the incumbent president Susan Kent by a very slim margin of 127 votes, out of more than 12,217 votes that were cast. Spence, who headed a slate of candidates under the coalition of union professionals or “coup” ticket, spoke with WAMC news about his priorities once he takes office August 3.
