In the past 20 years, Oneida County has had five different representatives in Congress, Sherry Boehlert, Mike Arcuri, Richard Hanna, Claudia Tenney and now Anthony Brindisi. However, only one of those representatives has been the most successful, and it isn’t the one you think.
When Claudia Tenney was first elected in 2017, she hit the ground running, putting upstate New York on the map with President Trump by meeting with him and showcasing our wonderful region whenever possible. Tenney got to work almost immediately for veterans and our military, advocating for Rome Labs and a strong increase in defense spending in the first defense bill that Claudia would vote on.
Claudia then went on to advocate for Sherrill Manufacturing, and was able to get the group to showcase their product at the White House, while also passing bills that increase accountability in the VA and cut dangerous regulations in our financial sector. By the end of her first term, Tenney had passed a number of bills, worked directly on both the tax bill and the farm bill, and met with her constituents whenever possible. We need to make sure we send this great leader back to Congress to work alongside President Trump this year.
