The 15th Assembly District is up for grabs. The seat, which has been held by Republican Rob Walker since May 2005, became vacant as of midnight Jan. 2 when Walker stepped down to accept a position as Nassau County’s Deputy County Executive.
As of press time, Democrat Matt Meng of East Norwich and Republican Michael Montesano of Glen Head were scheduled to face off in a Feb. 9 special election. The winner will, under state law, have to run again in November 2010, which is when the seat would normally be up for re-election.
An article on both candidates will appear in an upcoming issue.
