It's game on in the 48th Senate District as Oswego County Legislator Amy Tressider, 56, makes official her candidacy against freshman Senator Patty Ritchie of Oswegatchie.
Ms. Tressider will hold a presser tomorrow in Watertown, which is the geographic center of the three-county district.
The Ritchie campaign had no immediate response to the challenge.
How about this, "The Senator congratulates Ms. Tressider on her candidacy and looks forward to explaining to voters the need for a Republican majority and detailing the Senator's accomplishments in office."
Ms. Ritchie has waged a relentless PR campaign, appearing at many events and leaving no maple tree untapped.
The Senator is a likeable campaigner and popular with voters.
As for my response. "I too congratulate Legislator Tressider on her candidacy and while I support Senator Ritchie as the best option for Watertown voters, I welcome the challenger to our City and hope she enjoys her time here."
