Incumbent Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee (D) is leading Republican challenger Joe Chabot in the 97th Assembly District.

According to unofficial election results, 27,573 votes have been cast for Jaffee, 16,692 votes for Chabot. Meanwhile 1,019 votes have been cast for Thomas Gulla on the Working Families line, who was defeated by Jaffee in the Democratic primary.

The district includes the Ramapo villages of Airmont, Chestnut Ridge, Suffern, Spring Valley, Hillburn, parts of Montebello, New Square, and other unincorporated parts of the town, as well as Orangetown.

Jaffee has represented the 97th district since 2006 after serving as a Rockland County legislator and Village of Suffern Trustee. In addition to having supported the East Ramapo oversight bill, Jaffee, along with State Sen. David Carlucci, have called for state hearings that would consider declaring a cease and desist zone in Rockland County as complaints of blockbusting have increased over the last few months .

Chabot, who is from Tappan, has emphasized the importance of making New York affordable for all residents, and his desire to court businesses, particularly in the tech industry, to the area .
