UTICA- Republican Dennis Bova, also a Utica native, announced on Friday afternoon he would be running for the 119th Assembly District seat, being vacated by Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi. 

Bova made the official announcement at Tiny's Grill, joined by his wife, mother and father.

Bova told NEWSChannel 2 he chose to run because he saw a need to improve the economy, implement more pilot programs in schools, and make schools safer. He said his mission in Albany is to be a voice for the people. "It would be a bigger honor to represent the people here. There's no bigger honor that you could have than the trust of the people," said Bova.

To date, Bova is the only republican in the race. He will face democrats Chris Salatino and Marianne Buttenschon in a primary election in September.
