Latimer Running for State Senate and War of Words Begins

Assemblyman George Latimer,  Rye Democrat, may not have voted for the re-configured State Senate districts, as he told us last week, but he’s going to run for the seat being vacated by longtime Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer. Latimer announced the run in a letter that went out to district leaders this week, which, according to LoHud, reads:

“The changes we need – the changes I have fought for all my life – involve sacrifice from everybody, not just from ‘the other guy’,” Latimer wrote. “Property taxes are too high, and I have worked hard to address that major worry many of us face; it always comes up as the #1 local issue homeowners are concerned about.”

At least two Republicans have announced their intention to run for the seat: Bob Cohen, a New Rochelle businessman who was narrowly defeated by Oppenheimer in 2010; and Diane DiDonato-Roth, a North Castle councilwoman. Cohen spokesman Bill O’Reilly responded:
“We welcome Mr. Latimer into this race, but find it head-scratching, frankly, that he would bring up property taxes in his announcement. Westchester families pay the highest property taxes in America because of what George Latimer did as a county legislator and as an assemblyman.

It may not be romantic, but two area State Representatives will open the floor–for four hours– to Westchester residents wishing to speak out on the proposed 2012-2013 New York State Budget.  

The Community Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 16th in the Council Chamber at New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. sponsored by Assemblyman George Latimer and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin. Attendees may testify for up to four (4) minutes on any aspect of the State budget proposal; written testimony will also be accepted at the meeting and over the ensuing week (until Friday, February 24th). The Governor’s proposed budget totals over $130 billion; budget highlights may be viewed on the Assembly website at www.assembly.state.ny.us. No appointment is required; speakers will be heard on a first-come, first-served basis, with a few exceptions made for unique circumstances.
