Sep 29, 2017 11:25 am
Joe Mahoney in the Niagara Gazette reports that Pete Lopez leaving for the Environmental Protection Agency, "is expected to touch off a scramble for his Assembly seat." So far Chris Tague, the Schoharie town supervisor and the Schoharie County Republican chairperson, says he is “strongly interested” in running for Lopez's seat. No other names have emerged yet with announced intentions to run if Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls a special election, or in the 2018 general election. The district covers Greene and Schoharie counties, and parts of Albany, Columbia, Ulster, Delaware and Otsego counties. Read the full story in the Niagara Gazette.
