I'm not a knee-jerk Democrat. I believe in getting things done to make people's lives better. It starts with finding common ground. I'll work with anyone who can help me in my fight to deliver results for the people and communities of Upstate NY.
That means making Upstate more affordable for working families, safeguardng Social Security and Medicare, and providing incentives that make small businesses successful. I will work for the kind of future that gives our kids opportunities here and keeps our families together.
Congress has been of little help to Upstate NY - it's broken and desperately needs to be fixed. Even our democracy seems vulnerable. Extremists and ultra-partisans have made governing a chaotic nightmare where finger pointing and insults replace common sense, hard work and achieving real results. You don’t have to be divisive, ultra-partisan, hateful or a conspiracy theorist to be effective. In fact, you’ll be more effective if you aren’t.
Meanwhile, Representatives just get richer while working families, seniors, Upstate farmers, the middle class, the poor, and small businesses are being squeezed, and often treated like second-class citizens.
I know what it is like to struggle and like so many of you, have had to work hard to stay one step ahead. I hope to meet you in the months ahead, listen to your concerns and take your concerns, hopes and dreams to Congress where I will work tirelessly to make the long needed changes that will make our lives a little better. Please join me.

Where I Come From....
I'm proud of the fact that I was born and raised in Upstate NY. My mother, a nurse and single parent of four worked two jobs yet we still lived paycheck to paycheck. At 14 I was working on the farms near our Spencerport home. Summers were spent in the orchards, picking fruit in the day and loading bushels onto trucks late into the evening.
Growing up, we were taught that an education and helping people were priorities. So off to SUNY Brockport (BS, Psychology, Summa Cum Laude) and later Syracuse University College of Law (Go Orange!), spending summers working as a painter and carpenter. A First Amendment, public interest attorney, I packed my bags and left for Washington, DC, eager to change the world.
While telling you where I stand on issues is important, I will spend some time laying out where the current District 24 Representative (Claudia Tenney) stands on issues and what her priorities seem to be as shown by her voting record....
