Gates supervisor Assini to challenge Slaughter

Gates, N.Y. -- Republican Town Supervisor Mark Assini announced Thursday he will challenge Rep. Louise Slaughter for the states 25th District seat.

Slaughter (D-Fairport) was elected in 1986 and has won reelection against 14 different Republican opponents.

In the business world, you dont line up Democrat and Republican, Assini said. You look at a problem and you offer a solution, and you try to implement that solution. What I bring is that type of background with that type of mindset.

Independent candidate Tim Dean said he plans to announce Friday he will also challenge for the seat.

In a statement, Slaughter, who turns 85 this year, said shes a tough fighter for local voters and looks forward to the challenge.
