A month after community activist Dmytro Fedkowskyj announced his candidacy for the state Assembly District 30 seat, Assemblywoman Marge Markey (D-Maspeth) has begun her efforts to win a ninth term in office.

Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Bronx, Queens), left, joined Markey and a handful of supporters Monday to begin petitioning to get the assemblywoman on this year’s ballot.

She will take on Fedkowskyj in a Sept. 9 Democratic primary, with the winner moving on to November’s general election.

Markey won her first state Assembly term in 1998, succeeding Crowley, and has comfortably defeated Maspeth businessman Anthony Nunziato in the last three election cycles.
