East Hills businessman and former Democratic Nassau County executive candidate Adam Haber next week will formally announce his run for the State Senate seat held by Republican Sen. Jack Martins of Mineola.

Haber will kick off the campaign at noon on March 27 at the VFW Post 5253 on Searingtown Road in Albertson. Haber formed a campaign committee for his expected Senate run last week.

The race is expected to be among the most competitive on Long Island. Democrats have a nearly 19,000-person voter enrollment advantage in the 7th Senate District, according to the State Board of Elections.
