WHITE PLAINS — Democrats in Westchester County gathered Tuesday to unanimously choose Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer as the candidate to fill the state senate seat left vacated by newly-elected Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

"We need a Democrat," Mayer said in her speech to the Democratic Committee. "We need someone who really stands up for Democratic values, and I think George set the model for that and I look forward to following in his footsteps in his own style in my own way."

Mayer vowed to work hard to make sure Democrats maintained control of the 37th District, which could be key for party control in the future.

A special election will be held to choose who fills Latimer's seat, the date of which will be announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and should take place sometime in the next three months.
