Yudelka Tapia wins special election for 86th Assembly District

After finishing second in the June primary for the 14th NYC Council District in the west Bronx, Yudelka Tapia did not give up.

In August, the tide turned in her direction as New York State Assemblyman Victor Pichardo stepped down to spend more time with his family and the Bronx Democratic Party nominated Tapia to replace him. And when a special election was called, no one stepped up to oppose her.
