Mayor Danny Liedka today formally announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for a State Senate seat in the 49th District. He will be running against incumbent David Valesky, whom he said has fallen victim to the "go-along, get-along Albany machine, becoming a prisoner of downstate special interests."
"But I'm not just running against Dave Valesky," Liedka added. "I'm running against a system so corrupt that it borders on criminal enterprise."
Republicans Andrew Russo and Jessica Crawford are also in the race for a seat. The Republican Committee will make an endorsement this spring.
