New York State Senator Jose Peralta died of an obvious coronary heart assault late Wednesday night time, mates and fellow lawmakers mentioned. He was 47.
Peralta, a Democrat, represented a Queens district that included numerous neighborhoods corresponding to Corona, Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and Woodside.
“Tragic information about @SenatorPeralta,” State Senator Mike Gianaris wrote on Twitter. “My coronary heart goes out to his household. Relaxation In Peace,” Michael Blake, a present candidate for New York Metropolis Public Advocate mentioned he was, “Actually confused.”
“Sleep at peace Jose Peralta,” he tweeted.
Peralta was the primary Dominican-American elected to the State Senate in March 2010.
This fall, Peralta was defeated in a Democratic major by Jessica Ramos. She then cruised to victory within the normal election for Peralta’s seat.
