The Oneida County Democratic Committee has endorsed Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon for re-election from the 119th District, Buttenschon announced.
“As the only member of the Assembly’s Majority Conference between Schenectady and Syracuse I have an even more urgent duty to every family that calls the Mohawk Valley home,” Buttenschon said. “It is not enough to be a voice for the people. A strong representative must also be a force for the people.”
“Earning the overwhelming support of the Oneida County Democratic Committee is crucial to winning a second term,” Buttenschon said. “The future of the 119th depends on sending a member of the Assembly Majority to Albany. I am grateful to the committee and will do what I’ve always done- justify my party’s trust by first earning the people’s trust.”
The 119th Assembly District is comprised of Utica, Rome, Whitestown, Marcy and Floyd in Oneida County and the Town of Frankfort in Herkimer County.
Before winning election to the Assembly in 2018 Assemblywoman Buttenschon was a dean at Mohawk Valley Community College and vice-president of the Utica Community Food Pantry. She and her husband Don, a retired school psychologist, own and operate the Buttenschon Christmas Tree Farm.
