State Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-St. Albans), who received more than 90 percent of the vote in a March 28 special election, was in the state Senate Chamber in Albany getting his committee assignments the day after the election.
Smith said he wasted no time in going to the senate floor and setting up offices in Albany and St. Albans because the district has been without representation for four months. The 10th Senate District seat became vacant in January when Alton Waldon Jr. stepped down from the office to become a state judge.
