Attorney, Former Educator Announces Campaign for State Senate

A longtime educator-turned-attorney announced Monday afternoon that she is running for the 37th state Senate District this fall in hopes of unseating a popular incumbent.

Republican Tricia Lindsay, who taught in the New York City and Yonkers school systems for 24 years and also served as an administrator, entered the race against Democratic Sen. Shelley Mayer with a video announcement.

In her message, Lindsay, a Harrison resident, said she is a strong believer in the power of the individual to overcome adversity and that education can be the great equalizer, but too many have been left behind.

“I’ve seen the challenges that we face,” Lindsay said. “I’ve watched the targeting of our children, the attack on the family and the erosion of parental rights, an invasion into every area of our lives and the untethered assault on our constitution. With that I have come to realize that I cannot afford to wait any longer for change, and I cannot sit idly by while our communities are overlooked, our children’s futures are jeopardized and our shared potential is left untapped.”

Lindsay is the first candidate to publicly announce for the 37th Senate District, which stretches from a portion of Yonkers, includes many of the Sound Shore communities and into Harrison and North Castle.
