In a statement to constituents, Katz, a Yorktown resident, said, “Once again I am honored to be representing you and being your voice up in Albany. I look forward to going back to Albany and working on initiatives that will improve our community and our state. I am going to fight to get mandate relief back to our community, repeal common core, protect our constitutional rights and stand up to corruption in our state government.”

As for Falk, a Patterson resident who owns a Brewster based law firm, he said according to his Facebook page, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth fighting for. I am proud of the campaign we ran. We fell short but we fought for what we believed. Thank you for your support. I will never forget it.”

Katz, who believes in term limits, noted during the campaign this upcoming term would be his last. As for Falk, his campaign message was standing up for the middle class.
