The New York 37th Senate District includes villages, towns, cities, and unincorporated hamlets in southern and central Westchester county.
The New York 37th Senate District is currently represented by Shelly Mayer (D; WF; SAM). Her challenger is Liviu Saimovici (R; C).
League of Women Voters of White Plains president, Stephen Cohen, said, “this Candidates Forum is an important opportunity for residents of the 37th Senate District to hear where the candidates stand on important issues in a calm, respectful, nonpartisan environment that encourages civil discourse. The Forums have even greater importance today when candidates' options for making themselves known to their constituents is greatly curtailed. We are pleased that both candidates in the race will be participating.”
This Candidates Forum is being presented by the local Leagues of Larchmont/Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Northeast Westchester, White Plains, and the Woman’s Club of White Plains, in conjunction with the League of Women Voters of Westchester.
