Meet the (new) Majority: Yuh-Line Niou

Second time was the charm for Yuh-Line Niou, who was elected to represent the 65th Assembly District this fall.

The freshman legislator, who was sworn in this week, came up short in a long-shot bid for the seat during a special election in April, but won in November when she had the Democratic nomination.

We talked about the campaign process, taking over the seat once held by former-Speaker Sheldon Silver and the benefits of being an Albany insider.

This continues our “Meet the (new) Majority” series, which has included conversations with Assembly members Clyde Vanel and Brian Barnwell.
