Assemb. Dean Murray Concedes Election to Democrat Ed Hennessey

Recount puts the former Brookhaven Town councilman on top and denies Murray a second full term.

Republican Assemb. Dean Murray led challenger Ed Hennessey by 36 votes on election night, but a recount has turned the tables and Hennessey, a former Brookhaven Town councilman is now headed to Albany. 

Officials confirmed that Murray, of Patchogue, conceded the 3rd Assembly District race to Hennessey after a second day of recanvassing Thursday put the Democrat on top. 

Newsday reported that Hennessey, a lawyer, won by 226 votes when all the ballots were counted Friday.  

Murray, who took office in 2010 after winning a special election and won a full two year term later that year, posted a note on his Facebook page Friday morning thanking his supporters. 

"It has truly been an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of the 3rd Assembly District over the past 3 years, but it appears that it wasn't in the cards for me to continue doing so. Thank you once again for all of your support!" he wrote. 

The 3rd Assembly District includes Blue Point, Farmingville, Gordon Heights, Holtsville, Medford and Patchogue.

Shouldn't absentee votes count, too? I'm disabled and have voter by mail for 5 years now. Should I loose my vote?

Two more thoughts... 1 - Why would anyone bother to write in a candidate who was on the ballot. I can't think of anyone in New York State who won by write in in the last 50 years. 2 - All our men and women serving overseas have to vote by absentee ballots. Shouldn't their votes count as much as yours? One more minor point, should the candidate with the most votes win, or just the candidates you vote for?

I'm not accusing anyone of "faking it". http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com My point is that our Pompeii - like most classical http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net sites, in fact - is the product of collaboration between http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com modern rebuilders and conservators, and the original Roman builders http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com themselves, with the lion's share of the work on our side.And it's no less impressive or moving http://www.coachoutletaol.org for that - as the body casts help to show.One of http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net the video clips played in the exhibition at the Getty Museum comes http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com from Roberto Rossellini's film, Voyage in Italy, in which the lead couple, http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com played by Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders, tour the country as their marriage http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org disintegrates.On their visit to Pompeii they watch the plaster being http://www.coachoutletwy.com poured into a cavity left by two of the victims. http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com In the movie's most haunting scene, these victims emerge as a couple.
