"I'm running to put people first again by fighting to bring economic opportunity to NY-23. It's not about Republican or Democrat. It's about working and middle class people. It's about our children and grandchildren. It's about what we need, what we want, and what we deserve. It's about uniting around our common values and making NY-23's rural communities, towns, and cities a great place to live, work and raise a family."

July 3rd —NY-23 Democratic Candidate Tracy Mitrano received a call from NY-23 Democratic Candidate Max Della Pia who conceded the NY-23 Democratic Primary.

Here is Tracy Mitrano’s statement: “Max Della Pia called me this afternoon to concede the NY-23 Democratic Primary. I thanked Max for stepping up to run and mobilizing a strong base of supporters. I would also like to thank all…

Why I Am Voting for Tracy

“Tracy Mitrano is a champion and fierce advocate of Women’s Equality Party tenets, such as defending access to affordable healthcare, to protecting women’s rights in the workplace. We are confident she will bring that same spirit to Congress. She has a clear message which resonates across New York’s 23rd District, and a creative vision for our area that will translate into sustainable, concrete results.”

“I am pleased to announce that I have endorsed Tracy Mitrano for Congress. With compassion and a bias for action to meet the challenges we are facing, Tracy is absolutely the leader we need representing New York’s 23rd District in Washington. Her comprehensive economic development plan focuses on the real needs of constituents in places like Watkins Glen–defending access to affordable health care, helping small businesses, building vital infrastructure, addressing transportation challenges, providing our children with quality education and training, and keeping our environment safe and clean. We need Tracy in Congress because she will work tirelessly to help our communities thrive.”

“I am so pleased to endorse Tracy Mitrano for Congress. The upcoming election in November is a chance to unite around a candidate who has the integrity, leadership, experience, and vision to truly represent the 23rd in Congress. Tracy’s focus on issues such as creating jobs, defending access to affordable health care, developing infrastructure, and protecting the environment are all issues that are important to constituents from Ithaca to Hornell to Wellsville and Jamestown, regardless of their political affiliation. Having spent her entire live in Western and Southern Tier New York, she has a genuine love for this area that will make her an excellent steward of this District. We must unite around these common values to elect someone who truly has the best interest of our beautiful District at heart, and that’s Tracy Mitrano.”

“I’m a lifelong Democrat and I believe that our NY 23rd District would greatly benefit from the truly representative leadership in the House that Tracy would provide. I believe that incumbent Republican Tom Reed has failed to represent the working people of this district for the past seven years. Reed has repeatedly voted for party over principle, and has always favored the wealthiest at the expense of ordinary New Yorkers. The NY 23rd District is a largely rural and less-developed, but very widespread area that could use federal resources that Reed has failed to provide. Tom Reed has had his chance, and NY 23rd needs a change.”

“Tracy is the whole package. She understands the needs of all the people in this district, the working people and the single moms and dads. She is bright and personable, well-spoken and has lots of energy. I liked her the minute I met her. I like and respect most of the candidates in the 23rd, but I feel Tracy is the most electable and the very best candidate to go forward with and beat Tom Reed.”

“I’m voting for Tracy for many reasons, but especially because of her positions on universal healthcare and internet infrastructure.

The healthcare industry should be a zero-sum business (to provide everyone with great quality of care) and the US spends WAY TOO much on care as it is. A single payer system, everyone in the paying pool, simple. Internet infrastructure is another huge YES. When I moved up here from the south, I went back to 1980’s internet! Her knowledge and experience in cyber-security is second to none. We need her in Congress to update and focus our national security against those threats.”

“We need a fresh face in Congress who cares about the average citizens and their daily struggles, and not just the wealthy and special interest groups. Tom Reed voting against the Affordable Care Act showed me he is out of touch with his constituents. I would like to see a single payer health care system that is fair for everyone and Tracy will fight for that. Tracy’s cyber security expertise is also a plus and is much needed in today’s world.”
