Anker Challenges Palumbo for East End NY Senate Seat

The field of candidates running for elected office on the East End this fall is starting to take shape.

Former Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), who was term-limited from seeking re-election in the fall, is challenging two-term New York State Sen. Anthony Palumbo (R-New Suffolk), who represents the Hamptons and the North Fork in Albany.

“The reality is, the State Senate has a 42-21 Democratic supermajority, and the only way Suffolk County can get its fair share, is to have strong voices in the majority who will fight for our Long Island values,” Anker said. “As a Democrat who has represented a Republican district, I will continue to find  common ground for the common good by bringing people together and setting politics aside.”
