State Sen. Jay Costa will seek a fifth term in the General Assembly, he announced Monday.

Costa, 54, of Forest Hills, serves as the Democratic Leader in the Republican-controlled Senate. No other candidates, Republican or Democrat, filed the necessary paperwork to get on the ballot against him, according to the state's unofficial candidate list.

Costa said his top priorities for the coming year include halting a court-ordered property reassessment in Allegheny County and securing more money for the county's struggling Port Authority.
