(WBNG) -- There's another person looking to represent New York's 122nd district in the state assembly.

Victor Furman, the president of the Land Owner Advocates of New York, joins Nick Libous and Joe Angelino in the race. He served in the US Army from 1972 to 1976.

He says he wants to create more transparency in Albany.

In a statement sent to 12 News, Furman said the following:

I have traversed the state for over 10 years attending hundreds of town board meetings on the subject of property rights, all forms of energy pro and con. I  stood against the woman's health care act, and bail reform, speaking out against it before it was announced warning others of what was coming.

I am for total repeal of Cuomo's Safe Act.

I am running on transparency, my goal as a legislative elected will be to let my constituents know what Albany is planning before they make Law not after, so that people can speak out or in favor of or against. My hope will be to disrupt the flow of misinformation among the legislature on subjects as important as Energy and the misinformational campaign Albany politicians have been Subjected too, to be the loud and knowledgeable voice of the people in my district.

Victor Furman

The current state representative, Clifford Crouch, is not running for reelection after 25 years in the assembly.
