Elaine Altman, a long time public school educator, will officially announce her Democratic candidacy against State Sen. Michael H. Ranzenhofer, R-Williamsville, on Saturday.

Altman’s campaign said the Amherst resident will kick off her effort at three locations throughout the district, emphasizing her proposals for the state’s education system. The new candidate has a long resume outlining a number of teaching, administrative and labor union positions.

She is expected to campaign on proposals for “fair funding for all schools,” investment in public services, and mandates that “positively support teaching and learning,” according to her campaign.
