WESTFORD – Local tech-project manager and activist Chad McEvoy today announced his campaign in the 101st Assembly District. A Democrat, he is challenging Republican Brian Miller of New Hartford.
In Otsego County, the 101st includes Springfield, Middlefield, Westford and Maryland. A long, narrow district, it extends from New Hartford, outside Utica, south to the Town of Montgomery in Orange County.
“We can do more for our area – focusing state resources on the needs of our communities – by working with, not against, the majority in Albany,” said McEvoy, who ran against Republican county Rep. Peter Oberacker, R-Schenevus, last fall.
