UTICA -- Utica School Board president, Chris Salatino, announced his candidacy for the 119th Assembly District Thursday.

The seat is currently held by Anthony Brindisi and covers Utica, Rome, Frankfort, Floyd, Marcy, and Whitestown.

“I’m running for the Assembly because our schools and kids need more out of Albany” Salatino said, “Anthony Brindisi has done tremendous things for us and I want to continue that fight in the State Capitol.”

Salatino has been a small business owner for more than 20 years. His business, Claims Solutions, does work internationally.

Salatino says he’s looking forward to the campaign, and proving why his leadership skills make him the best candidate.

“From helping to create good paying jobs, to cleaning up New York’s ethics mess and fighting Albany’s disastrous school funding formula, there’s a lot to be done in the Assembly,” Salatino said.

Salatino will run against Marianne Buttenschon, dean of the Institute for Emergency Preparedness and Public Service at Mohawk Valley Community College, who announced her candidacy in July.
