New York State AssemblyEdit

In 2016, longtime Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, who had represented the district for thirty four years, decided to run for the New York Senate to replace Hugh Farley, who had served in his seat for forty years.[4] Walsh, seeking the Republican nomination, defeated Jim Fischer in the primary election, 55% to 45%.[5]

She would go on to win the general election against Democrat Michael R. Godlewski by a 62% to 38% margin. Walsh was sworn into office on January 1, 2017.
