New City Republican Matt Brennan, an Indian Point employee and former New York Police Department sergeant, has been nominated by the district Republicans for the May 1 election to fill the 94th Assembly District seat.
The seat has been empty since the March 18 death of Assemblyman Kenneth P. Zebrowski, 61.
The Republicans held their convention last night. The Democrats will choose their nominee tonight.
Brennan ran for the Clarkstown Town Board in 2003 and the 17th Congressional District in 2004. Brennan works in the security department at Indian Point.
An open letter to voters listed several issues which Brennan said may require statewide voter referendums, including assisted suicide, a tax deduction for businesses who hire teenagers, the construction of a new bridge in Stony Point and the elimination of amusement park tickets that allow visitors to cut to the front of the line.
Zebrowski’s son, Kenneth P. Zebrowski Jr. has announced his intentions to run, but first needs the backing of district Democrats.
