New entry into the county executive race Vladimir Leon (D-Spring Valley), expressed to the Rockland County Times that he does not appreciate being termed a “man off the street” candidate, as he was in the Timelines section of the paper’s March 7 edition. Leon said he’s very serious about his campaign and is putting together a political organization with the intent of getting on the Democratic ballot line.

Leon has run for office in the past, including receiving 11 percent of the vote when he ran for Spring Valley Justice position. Although he does not have a law degree, many judgeships do not require formal law training in order to qualify to run for the position.
