Deputy Controller Simcha Felder told Hamodia that he’s running for State Senate on the Democratic line in the new Orthodox Jewish-majority district in Brooklyn. He had also been wooed by the Republican party.
Felder is abandoning the city Controller John Liu, whose campaign finances are under federal investigation.
In February, Liu lost the services of his other second in command, Eric Eve.
“I look forward, God willing, to the opportunity to once again serve the community and the people of New York State,” Felder told Hamodia.
