Our New Congressional District: NY-24

In May, a judge finalized the NEW NY State Congressional districts. These replace districts that were established only a few months before but were ruled unconstitutional. 

Seneca County is now part of the new NY-24 CD. It stretches from Watertown to Batavia, and includes Auburn, Geneva, Canandaigua, Geneseo and Oswego. It does not contain the cities of Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca or Buffalo. 

Our first election in this year. The Democratic candidate is Steven Holden. Check out his profile on our November 8 Election  page. He is running against Republican Claudia Tenney, who currently represents the (old) NY-22 district. Tenney is perhaps most notorious for her remark, in the wake of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018, that " it’s interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats." Tenney is a staunch opponent of gun safety measures. She has been endorsed by Trump, and has praised the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision overturning Roe vs. Wade.
