ERIE COUNTY, NY –( release) Maria Whyte said, “I spoke with Chris Jacobs this morning. Although the Board of Elections still has work to do to certify the outcome of the race, I called him to acknowledge that it seems highly unlikely I will obtain the number of votes necessary to overcome the gap between us.
It has been a great honor and pleasure to participate in our democracy by holding public office and serving the residents of the 6th legislative district over the past 6 years.
I am tremendously proud of all we accomplished in the district. I look forward to new and different opportunities to serve the public, work for the good of our community, and participate in our centuries old democracy.”
