Jeremiah Frei-Pearson, a Democrat who ran for a Queens seat in the New York State Assembly in 2010 before dropping out, is now running for a completely different Assembly seat in a completely different county.
Mr. Frei-Pearson recently filed paperwork to run against GOP Assemblyman Robert Castelli, who won a 2010 special election in the Westchester County district.
According to the Lewisboro Ledger, he moved to White Plains last year where he now works at a local law firm. Although Mr. Frei-Pearson grew up in Westchester, it remains notable that he ran for the Astoria-based Assembly seat in the last election cycle. The 2010 election was eventually won by Aravella Simotas.
David Buchwald, another White Plains lawyer, is also seeking the Democratic nomination to take on Assemblyman Castelli. As the previous occupant of the seat was a Democrat, the election could easily be quite competitive.
