Since announcing his intent to run for New State Assembly in March, former Rye Mayor Steve Otis has been preparing for the launch of his campaign next Saturday.
Rye Assemblyman George Latimer (D) is running for the vacancy created by New York Senator Suzi Oppenheimer's retirement against developer Bob Cohen.
“I am eager to put my skills and years of public service to work in this new role," said Otis. "The experience I have gained from working closely with Suzi Oppenheimer for 27 years, as well as my 12 years as Mayor of Rye, have provided me with a deep knowledge of issues important to Westchester residents."
Next Saturday's fundraiser will be held in Oppenheimer's Mamaroneck home. She is retiring after nearly 28 years in Albany.
The 91st Assembly District includes Larchmont, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye Brook and Rye.
