Due to becoming the new Westchester County Executive, George Latimer’s NY State Senate seat is now open. Local Democrats have endorsed Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer. On Wednesday, January 24th, there were approximately 150 supporters to help open her Mamaroneck campaign office which is located on Ward Avenue, across from the train station. Republican candidates are Westchester Prosecutor, Dan Schorr and attorney Sarmad Khojasteh. A primary to decide the Republican candidate is likely. In the meantime, Governor Andrew Cuomo has not set a date for a special election.
