Planned Parenthood NYC Votes Congratulates Diana Richardson for Assembly District 43 Victory

District is Now Represented by First Pro-Reproductive Health Official in a Decade

NEW YORK – Planned Parenthood NYC Votes congratulates Diana Richardson for winning her race in the special election in New York State Assembly District 43.

"We're thrilled that Diana Richardson, a passionate advocate for reproductive health and rights, will now represent Assembly District 43," said Christina Chang of Planned Parenthood NYC Votes. "This is a significant victory both because Richardson is such a strong supporter of access to sexual and reproductive health and information, and because this seat has been held by elected officials who have held anti-reproductive health positions for more than a decade. We're proud to have stood with Richardson and look forward to working with her to advance critical policies and bills that will help all New Yorkers access the sexual and reproductive health care they need, when they need it."

Planned Parenthood NYC Votes endorsed Richardson in her race and executed a strong get-out-the-vote strategy, encouraging Assembly District 43 residents to vote for Richardson through phone banks and by canvassing in the district for the past two weeks, including on Election Day.
