Louise lost her first election. Nevertheless, she persisted. True to herself, she kept pushing for what she thought was best. True to herself, she kept pushing for what she thought was best, to strengthen our families and community. She believed in bringing good paying jobs to our region, making healthcare more affordable, preserving our environment, and always fighting for workers’ rights. She stood up to the status quo and brought fresh ideas and a new perspective to government.

I lost my first election, too. But my time with the Congresswoman inspires me to push onward and run again next year. Together, we came close to flipping this seat by knocking on over 21,000 doors and earning 43% of the vote as a first time candidate. Now, more than ever, Rochester needs a voice in the State Senate’s new Democratic majority. We can’t afford to be left behind. We deserve better, and like Louise, I will never stop fighting for upstate families. 

I humbly ask for your support as we campaign for change, and I ask for your vote. If you have any questions, feel free to stop me in the cereal aisle. I want to hear from you.



MY EARLY DAYS WITH Congresswoman Slaughter

I worked with Jeremy on Capitol Hill when we got our start with Louise Slaughter. Even then, when we answered the phones and responded to letters, and more strongly every day since, Jeremy has been a champion for Rochester and listens to neighbors—a public servant in the truest sense.
