Oswego County Legislator Amy Tresidder will declare her candidacy for the 48th District Senate seat tomorrow.
Tressider, a Democrat, will challenge Republican senator Patricia Ritchie in the November election.
Tresidder will kick off her campaign in Canton at noon, followed by Watertown before heading to Oswego to make her announcement.
A native of St. Lawrence County, Tresidder moved to the city of Oswego 33 years ago. She is serving her second term in the legislature.
Tresidder said she will run a grass-roots campaign and won’t accept financing from downstate interests. “It’s time for the people to decide who is to represent them, not the big money interests,” she said.
