Westchester County Judge Susan Cacace has submitted retirement papers to step down from the bench, paving the way for her to run for Westchester District Attorney.

Cacace has not formally announced her candidacy and her resignation is not effective until Dec. 7….

Cacace would be the fourth Democrat to enter the race. Former Westchester prosecutor Adeel Mirza of New Rochelle and civil rights lawyer William Wagstaff III of Mount Vernon registered campaign committees with the state Board of Elections in recent months and Yorktown resident Sheralyn Pulver Goodman, a longtime public defender who now runs the county’s Independent Office of Assigned Counsel, has also said she is running.
