Martin J. Kennedy Is Elected to the New York State Senate

In January 1924, a shift took place in the political landscape of New York State. The event in focus is the election of Martin J. Kennedy, a Democrat, to the State Senate.

Kennedy defeated his Republican opponent, Jacob Adler, in a special election. Kennedy garnered almost three times as many votes as Adler.

The special election was initiated due to the advancement of former State Senator, Salvatore Cotillo, to the position of a Supreme Court justice. Following Kennedy’s victory, the Democrats took control of the State Senate by a solitary vote. Despite this precarious majority, they had the capacity to influence vital legislative decisions.
