Southern Westchester County: The New York League of Conservation Voters is heading for your mailbox.
The top conservation group is dropping upwards of $150,000 on a state Senate race in Westchester, unveiling four — yes, four — new mailers Friday in support of Assemblyman George Latimer.
The mailers focus on four separate issues environmentalists have focused on in Albany: the MTA, the Environmental Protection Fund, the Sewage Right to Know Act and solar energy.
All four of the documents have a largely pro-Latimer spin, but one devoted to funding the MTA — in never specifically mentions the MTA tax, which has become an issue int he race — does devote a bit of space to knocking his GOP opponent: New Rochelle developer Bob Cohen.
Latimer and Cohen are running for the state Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer, D-Mamaroneck. Latimer is one of six candidates receiving financial backing from the League of Conservation Voters.
