It’s all a bit procedural, especially since Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk hasn’t exhausted her legal options just yet, but Republican Senate candidate George Amedore says he’s filed for his oath of office today with the state Board of Elections.

Amedore is not a guaranteed state senator from the newly created 46th district just yet.

Tkaczyk still has her day in court on Monday as an appeals court hears her case following the certification by acting Montgomery County Judge Guy Tomlinson in Amedore’s favor by a mere 37 votes.

“Following the State Board of Elections certification of my election to the 46th Senate District, I filed my oath of office today to serve the families of Albany, Greene, Montgomery, Schenectady and Ulster counties,” Amedore said in a statement. “I have tremendous respect for the appellate process, and look forward to a swift decision. I am eager to get to work on behalf of my constituents so we can keep building on the progress we’ve made in turning New York around.”

Republicans would certainly like the case to be resolved by Wednesday, the first day of the legislative session as they work out the finer points of the new power-sharing agreement with the five-member Independent Democratic Conference. Democrats have sought — and failed to receive — an order to have judges legally block Amedore from taking a seat in the chamber.

The SD-46, which includes the Mohawk and Hudson valleys, is the final outstanding legislative race from November.
