The Haitian Times
Bridging the gap
Haitian American candidates and those representing large swaths of Haitian constituents took home victories in the midterm elections for the most part as results trickled in past midnight.
Two officials, Assembly members Rodneyse Bichotte and Clyde Vanel, ran uncontested, taking more than 80% of the vote; while Brooklyn Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus’ race is still too close to call. Her opponent was leading with a little over 700 votes at the time of this writing. 
“When we say count every vote. We mean it literally,” Frontus posted on Twitter. “For those asking: election night Nov. 2020, my Republican opponent was ahead by 2,822 votes with 99% of the scanned votes counted according to an unofficial count on BOE website. As of this morning, my current opponent is ahead by 797 votes with 94.96% of scanners reported.”
