Nily Rozic is thinking about running for Rory Lancman’s state Assembly seat.
From the Queens Tribune: Rozic, 26, recently opened an exploratory committee and will contend against Iannece and other candidates that are sure to surface in a district that runs horizontally from south Flushing to the Douglaston Little Neck area. She took a leave of absence from Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh’s office (D-Manhattan), where she served as chief of staff. A Fresh Meadows resident that was born in Jerusalem, Rozic has been a member of CB 8 for the past year, sitting on three committees: land use, education and transportation. Unlike Iannece, who ran in a 2009 City Council primary, Rozic has not run for office before.
“We need to focus on getting more people involved in government, including young people and immigrants. Women are severely underrepresented in state government,” she said.
