Patricia Fahy is an American politician and a member of the Democratic Party, who currently represents parts of Albany County in the New York State Assembly. She previously served as president of the Albany City Board of Education.

Electoral history

2012 elections

On September 13, 2012, there was a primary election in the Democratic Party, to replace retiring incumbent Jack McEneny, who had served as Assemblyman for 20 years. Fahy received 5,335 votes (36.34%) in a crowded field that included Frank J. Commisso, Jr., Christopher T. Higgins, William J. McCarthy, Jr., Jim Coyne, and Margarita Perez, as well as write-in candidates. Ted J. Danz, Jr., however, beat Fahy in the Independence Party primary held the same date, 51 to 46%, with some write-ins. Her opponents were all politically well-connected: Commisso and Higgins were sitting members of the Albany County Legislature; McCarthy was an attorney and scion of a well-known family of the area; Perez was a notable local political activist; and businessman Danz had been active in local Republican politics for decades.

In the November 2012 general election, Fahy won with 37,967 votes, or almost 63%, on the Democratic and Working Family party lines, against Danz, who got about 32.5% on the Republican and Independence lines, and perennial candidate and Tea Party activist Joseph P. Sullivan on the Conservative line, who got about 3.5% of the vote.

Fahy has been fighting Governor Andrew Cuomo's proposed 2014-2015 education budget.

She praised Cuomo's environmental efforts, but questioned the timing of delays to environmental review.
