Dan Lamb is the Deputy Supervisor for the Town of Dryden and former 15-year District Representative for late NY-22 Congressman Maurice D. Hinchey. In 2012, Dan ran for New York’s 22nd Congressional seat.
“I am pleased to announce my endorsement of Tracy Mitrano for Congress,” Mr. Lamb said. “I encourage all registered Democrats in the 23rd Congressional District to vote for Tracy on Tuesday, June 26.”
“For 15 years, I had the honor of serving this region as district representative for the late Congressman Maurice D. Hinchey.” Mr. Lamb continued. “Therefore, I offer my endorsement of Tracy with some familiarity as to the demands of the job and what it takes to fight for an Upstate New York congressional district. Tracy stands out in her ability to unite people, her understanding of the district, and her articulation of an inclusive agenda. Tracy has demonstrated the rare combination of management skills, vision, empathy, and tenacity needed to be successful in the district—and in Congress. The 23rd Congressional District needs a fighter, and Tracy is that candidate.”
“As the current deputy supervisor in the town of Dryden, I see the damage that the current dysfunction in Congress is causing at all levels of government,” Mr. Lamb remarked. “Municipalities need a partner in Congress, not an adversary. We need a new Farm Bill to help our farmers, renewal of the National Flood Insurance Program to protect our residents, an actual infrastructure bill to make our roads and bridges safer, and tax reform that doesn’t punish local government and working families. The current Congress has failed badly on these and many other legislative priorities.”
“We must have fresh ideas and new voices in Congress. To make this happen, we must send leaders like Tracy to Washington. Now more than ever, we need a Congress willing to assert its powers as the preeminent branch of government and exercise oversight on an increasingly corrupt and chaotic presidency. The stakes could not be higher in this year’s midterm elections and it is essential that we nominate the strongest candidate possible to ensure victory in November. Tracy is that candidate. I urge all voters to review her platform and join me in supporting this special candidate.”
