Rodneyse Bichotte Becomes First Haitian American From NYC Elected To State Assembly

Rodneyse Bichotte has become the first Haitian American from New York City elected to the Assembly. The Bichotte campaign released the announcement late Tuesday evening.

“Today, the voters of the 42nd Assembly District have placed their confidence in me to represent them in the New York State Assembly,” Bichotte said. “It is an honor that I accept with great humility and gratitude.”

Bichotte faced Republican candidate Matthew Williams and Conservative Party candidate Brian Kelly for the 42nd district, which is home to one of the largest Haitian communities in the U.S.

“As a candidate, I promised to put the residents of this district first and deliver increased economic opportunity, affordable housing, and better the quality of education for our children,” Bichotte said. “I am ready to work toward achieving these goals, and with your continued support, they will become a reality.”

    Congratulations! Definitely a milestone for black women and for your own people. Please take sometimes out of your hectic schedule to read the book of Esther in the Bible and do the parallel. Go with God. You were chosen.
