Seeking to boost his upstate credentials for his run for attorney general, Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, D-Greenburgh, Westchester County, announced today the endorsement of Rep. Maurice Hinchey, D-Hurley, Ulster County.
Brodsky, along with the five other Democratic candidates for attorney general, are expected to attend this weekend’s Democratic Rural Conference in Niagara Falls, which kicks off tonight. The group will be conducting a straw poll tomorrow on its slate of candidates.
“It’s my pleasure to endorse my friend Richard Brodsky in his effort to be the next attorney general,” Hinchey said in a statement. “As a strong environmentalist, as a strong progressive, as an outspoken leader in the struggle for fair property taxes, civil rights and civil liberties, he has been an extraordinary leader for our state.”
