If you’re keeping a list of possible opponents for state Assemblyman Greg Ball, R-Carmel, strike Westchester County Legislator Mike Kaplowitz from it. Kaplowitz, a Somers Democrat, said today he’s “decided not to run for state Assembly.”
Kaplowitz won a sixth term last year as a county lawmaker. He lost a state Senate run against Sen. Vincent Leibell, R-Patterson, in 2006 and had been considering taking on Ball this year. Ball is running for a second term representing the 99th Assembly District.
