YORKTOWN, NY - July 15th is an important date for campaigns across New York State because it is traditionally the first campaign filing deadline for candidates running in the upcoming November election. Many campaigns live or die based on the strength of their filing. Yorktown Supervisor Matt Slater, who is running for the 94th Assembly District, raised $87,000 since his announcement in March which is the most of any Republican running for an open Assembly seat in the Hudson Valley.
"I am genuinley humbled by the broad support our campaign has already generated," said Slater. "People are really concerned about the direction our State is heading especially when it comes to the future affordability of New York, ensuring our communites are safe and getting big government off of their backs. I am excited to bring my record of success as Yorktown Town Supervisor to Albany and to be a strong advocate for common sense policies to turn New York around."
Slater has assembled a large coalition from both statewide, regional and local organizations. This includes prominent law enforcement groups such as the Affiliated Police Association of Westchester and Westchester COBA. Regional trades including the North Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters and UWUA Local 1-2 are also backing Slater's camapgin for Assembly.
The 94th Assembly District includes Carmel, Kent, Patterson, Putnam Valley, Somers, Southeast and parts of Yorktown. Election Day is November 8th.
