Grand Island Supervisor Nate McMurray announced Saturday that he'll again run for New York’s 27th Congressional District.

McMurray lost to current Congressman Chris Collins by less than 1 percent of the vote in November despite Collins facing a federal indictment and his future service to the district in question.

McMurray says his upcoming campaign will empower the "kindness and goodness around us." "We will, 'Be Kind,' he said in a release.

Collins recently said he plans to announce later this year whether he will seek reelection.

Republicans State Sen. Chris Jacobs and Beth Parlato, a family law attorney and former judge in Darien Center, have announced plans in recent weeks to seek the seat of the most Republican district in New York state.
