MANILA, Philippines- Gumawa ng kasaysayan si Democratic candidate Steven Raga nitong Martes bilang unang Filipino-American na nahalal sa New York State Assembly.

Nakamit ni Raga ang pwesto para sa District 30 sa Queens, kung saan tinalo niya ang Republican challenger na si Sean Lally sa 2022 midterm elections.

Ibinahagi ito ni Deirdre Levy, founder ng NYC Filipinos, sa isang Instagram post.

Bago ang eleksyon, inihayag ni Raga ang pasasalamat sa mga taga-suporta sa pmamagitan ng post sa Instagram.

“We are on the edge of history, and as a kid from Queens who grew up with a single mother, working three jobs while pursuing my education, the overwhelming support from all corners of the district means a lot to me,” pahayag niya. RNT/SA
