Election 2012: Ninth Assembly District

A redrawn district forced incumbent Saladino into primary; now Democrat Cherlin is his opponent.

This year's race for the new Ninth Assembly District seat is punctuated by its dramatic shift in district boundaries.

Longtime Republic incumbent Joseph Saladino saw part of his old 12th Assembly District morph from a predominantly Massapequa stronghold into the new 9th, two patches of the South Shore in two counties connected by Jones Beach Island.

Saladino, of Massapequa, who is serving his ninth year in the Assembly, easily beat back his primary challenger, a former New York City police Sgt. Richard Young, who garnered less than 20 percent of the vote in September.

Saladino's new opponent is Democrat Jay Cherlin, a little known health care administrator and community activist from Massapequa. 


The new Ninth Assembly District includes West Islip, Babylon, Massapequa and a portion of Farmingdale. It is connected by way of the Ocean Parkway, stretching from Jones Beach to Captree State Park. (However, the contiguous South Shore communities of Lindenhurst, Copiague and part of Amityville are not in the new Ninth.)
