CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- Cortlandt resident Justin Wagner has announced his intention to run again for the New York State Senate in 2014.
Wagner, a Democrat, ran for the seat in 2012 and nearly won against incumbent Senator Greg Ball, garnering 49 percent of the vote. The rematch is expected to be similarly close.
“For decades, this Senate seat has been held by professional politicians, but what our region needs now is a State Senator who shares the values of the Hudson Valley and will work with the Governor to stand up for those values," said Wagner in a statement. "I will fight for tougher ethics and campaign reforms in Albany and expanded economic opportunities for the Hudson Valley."
He has launched a new website where voters can learn more about Justin and his positions.
New York’s 40th Senate District includes parts of Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties.
