The field appears to be getting more crowded for Queens Assemblyman Rory Lancman’s seat.
Nily Rozic, the chief of staff for Manhattan Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh, has registered a campaign committee to run for seat held by Lancman, who is running for Congress.
Rozic, who did not immediately return requests for comment, joins Community Board 11 chairman Jerry Iannece in the field. Though she works for a Manhattan lawmaker, the campaign committee she registered says that she is a resident of the Queens neighborhood of Fresh Meadows.
Lancman has said he will not run for re-election to the Assembly whether he wins his heated NY-6 congressional primary or not, which actually would be possible this year, due to an unorthodox election calendar that put congressional primaries in June and legislative primaries in September.
Nily Rozic emails us with a statement -
“I’ve spoken to my family, friends and neighbors throughout our community and we all agree that we need a new voice in Albany who will fight for the hardworking middle class families of Queens, for seniors who are struggling, and for the many young people, immigrants and women who are underrepresented in state government. I’ve opened a committee to explore the possibility of running for the 25th Assembly District and look forward to continuing these conversations throughout the district in the weeks ahead.”
