Democrat Tracy Mitrano made it clear just weeks after losing to Republican Tom Reed in November of last year that she would run for the 23rd Congressional District House seat again.
This past week, she made it official.
Mitrano, of Milo, Yates County, officially launched her second bid at an event in Corning Thursday night. It was hosted by Corning City Democrats and the Mitrano campaign.
“(Politicians) who used to represent the center of American politics have become puppets to big moneyed corporate interests,” Mitrano said in a press release issued Friday. “In their pursuit of profit they do not care about our environment, all-consuming debt, separating children from their parents at the border, polluting the beautiful resources of our planet, predatory interest rates, failing infrastructure, the farmers in this district under water, literally and figuratively, the onerous tax burden on the middle class or the working poor who can’t make ends meet.”
