MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. At the Mount Pleasant Town Hall on Saturday morning, Republican Michael Smith will formally announce his campaign to run for Westchester County's District 3 Board of Legislators seat.
District 3 covers Mount Pleasant, North Castle, Pleasantville, Sleepy Hollow and part of Greenburgh.
Joan Maybury, Town Supervisor for Mount Pleasant, said Smith's campaign has the legs to go the distance.
"It's very early in the campaign process right now but I absolutely believe that Michael Smith will be a great candidate," she said.
Just as most politicians are, Maybury believes one issue that Smith will look to tackle will be property taxes.
"With the new tax laws in New York with the cap, I would think that one of his main goals would be to aid with taxes," Maybury said.
Along with Maybury, those in attendance at the event Saturday will be Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Westchester County Republican Chairman Doug Colety, and members of Smith's campaign team.
Smith has a background as a chief financial officer for a Westcheter business and experience as the former president of the Valhalla Board of Education.
The current legislator in District 3 is Democrat John Nonna, who is serving his second term.
The event at town hall Saturday is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
