UTICA – A candidate for the State Assembly will have his name on the primary ballot later this summer.
Republican Frederick Nichols is running for the 119th Assembly District seat. According to a press release from the Nichols campaign, the State Board of Elections recently certified a petition to get Nichols on the ballot for the September primary.
“’What about you?’ is my campaign slogan,” Nichols said in the release. “It is time for someone to stand up and fight for the American citizens in the 119th Assembly District. I intend to be that someone.”
Nichols will square off with fellow Republican Dennis Bova in the primary, which will take place on September 13. The winner will face either Marianne Buttenschon or Christopher Salatino, both Democrats, in the November 6 general election.
The 119th Assembly District seat is being vacated by current Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, who is challenging Republican Representative Claudia Tenney in the 22nd Congressional District.
