Oswego County Legislator Amy Tresidder said Thursday that she is considering a run for the New York State Senate seat currently held by Patty Ritchie.
Tresidder said she has filed with the Board of Elections for a spot on the ballot for the 48th Senate District.
“I am strongly considering challenging her,” Tresidder said of her prospective bid against incumbent Ritchie. “I have not yet made an official announcement.”
Tresidder said she has the support of the three counties that encompass the district: Oswego, St. Lawrence and Jefferson.
The St. Lawrence County native said she said she believes she can be a strong voice in Albany. “I have to believe that or I wouldn’t be considering a run,” she said.
A registered Democrat, Tresidder has been a vocal member of the county legislature.
