Another Dem to challenge Hevesi

From the Times Ledger:

When Forest Hills resident Joe Fox left his job in Albany decades ago, he hoped someday he would be back.

Fox aims for that someday to be next year, and he announced this week he will join the now three-way race for state Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi’s (D-Forest Hills) seat.

“I worked in Albany many years ago and got bitten by the bug back then,” Fox said of his two-year stint in the Capitol working for the Assembly with its Codes and Consumer Affairs committees. “It was an exciting time up there, and I’d like to go back because I see the need for good governance, responsible people and accountability.”

A resident of Forest Hills for more than 30 years and a Community Board 6 member, Fox is the third Democrat to vie for the seat representing the 28th Assembly District, alongside Hevesi and Lilianna Zulunova. The district covers Forest Hills, Rego Park, Middle Village and Glendale.

The more, the merrier, I suppose. A boon for democracy.
