Mike Sigler to challenge Lea Webb in 52nd District next year

Republican Tompkins County Legislator, Mike Sigler, is setting his sights on the New York State Senate, announcing his intention to run against incumbent Democrat Senator Lea Webb for the 52nd state Senate District in 2024.

Sigler, who confirmed his campaign to The Ithaca Voice, is the first to announce a challenge against Webb.


Currently, Sigler’s focus is on fundraising and he’s actively engaging with potential supporters. He entered the campaign trail early, filing his candidacy application last July.

Senator Webb, who has the backing of the Working Families Party, narrowly secured her two-year term in 2022, capturing around 50% of votes for the district, which includes Tompkins, Cortland, and parts of Broome County. Sigler, a self-proclaimed moderate, expressed his primary concern that Albany is neglecting local needs.
