Tracy Mitrano focuses on Reed’s seat

After eight weeks of exploratory campaigning, Yates County resident Tracy Mitrano announced her intention to run for the Democratic candidacy to oppose Republican Tom Reed for the N.Y. 23rd Congressional district in the 2018 election.

Mitrano addressed Yates County Democrats at two events Saturday, Sept. 16: a formal announcement at the old Yates County Courthouse, and an evening reception hosted at Publick Coffee Bar in downtown Penn Yan.

“My concern with the political climate in the aftermath of the Trump election generally, and the cybersecurity issues that contributed to that outcome, prompted me to think about running for elected office,” says Mitrano. “I have chosen the congressional seat because of my life-long experience in this district and because my professional expertise comports with federal issues that include foreign policy, tax policy, economic development related to the internet for agriculture, small and large businesses, universal health care (including the opioid crisis), maintenance of Medicaid and Social Security as a government program, the environmental protections, balanced gun laws, immigration reform, civil rights, including for transgender and same sex relationships, and education support, both K-12 and higher ed.”
