The Independence Party has announced it has nominated Assemblyman Tony Jordan, providing the Republican from Jackson a third party line on the November election ballot.

“Tony has proven to be a pro-jobs legislator who looks out for small businesses and taxpayers,” said state Independence Party Chairman Frank MacKay, in a press release.

Jordan also has the Republican and Conservative nominations.

Jordan is running against Democrat Carrie Woerner, a Round Lake village trustee, in the new 113th Assembly District.

Woerner also has the Working Families Party nomination.

The new 113th Assembly District includes the towns of Kingsbury, Hartford, Fort Edward, Argyle, Greenwich, Salem, Jackson and Easton in Washington County, and the towns of Moreau, Northumberland, Wilton, Saratoga, Malta, Stillwater and the city of Saratoga Springs in Saratoga County.
