Mark Gjonaj is still on a high from his primary win.
Gjonaj, a real estate developer, shocked many when he defeated Naomi Rivera in the primary for the 80th District Assembly seat.

Gjonaj, a father of two, says that his campaign will concentrate on the youth of the community and job creation. Mark Gjonaj wins 80th District primary
