Matt Slater, the endorsed Republican & Conservative candidate for the 94th Assembly District, delivered more than 2,600 signatures to the New York State Board of Elections.
ALBANY, NY – In New York State, candidates seeking to run for public office must circulate designating petitions to appear on the ballot. On Thursday, Matt Slater delivered more than 2,600 signatures to the New York State Board of Elections which is more than five times the minimum number to run under the Republican Party's banner.
"We are gearing up for a strong grassroots campaign and our army of volunteers put in an incredible effort these past weeks," Slater said. "Residents of the 94th Assembly District see the failures of New York City dominated one party rule. State government must do better, especially when it comes to improving public safety and making New York more affordable."
Slater currently serves as the Town Supervisor for the Town of Yorktown in Northern Westchester County. Just yesterday, the Yorktown Police Department rolled out its voluntary First Responder Alert Registry program which will provide specific mental health information to help police officers manage unpredictable situations. Additionally, Slater delivered Yorktown's first tax cut in decades while cutting spending.
In addition to the strong Republican Party effort, Slater also secured the Conservative Party endorsement and submitted more than double the minimum number to run on the line.
The 94th Assembly District includes Carmel, Kent, Patterson, Putnam Valley, Somers, Southeast and parts of Yorktown.
Election Day is set for Tuesday, November 8th.
