NISKAYUNA -- Democrat Michelle Ostrelich, of Niskayuna, has been endorsed by the Working Families Party in her bid for the 49th State Senate District.
Ostrelich is challenging incumbent Sen. James Tedisco, R-Glenville, a longtime state assemblyman who won the Senate seat two years ago.
"The Working Families Party is focused on issues that are important to the 49th district, and I'm proud to receive their endorsement," Ostrelich said.
Her issues, she said, include universal health care, high-quality public education and improving the economic condition of the middle class.
Ostrelich has also been endorsed by the Schenectady and Saratoga county Democratic committees.
The Senate District stretches from Schenectady County through western Saratoga County and includes much of the Adirondacks.
