Meng, Montesano to Face Off in 15th A.D. Special Election

The 15th Assembly District is up for grabs. The seat, which has been held by Republican Rob Walker since May 2005, became vacant as of midnight Jan. 2 when Walker stepped down to accept a position as Nassau County’s Deputy County Executive.

As of press time, Democrat Matt Meng of East Norwich and Republican Michael Montesano of Glen Head were scheduled to face off in a Feb. 9 special election. The winner will, under state law, have to run again in November 2010, which is when the seat would normally be up for re-election.

An article on both candidates will appear in an upcoming issue.
