(Elmira, NY) “Today I announce my candidacy for the NYS Assembly in the 124th District, as a Democrat. I feel I have something to offer this underserved District. I will bring the same commitment and passion to this elected position that I have for my current role serving on the Elmira City School District Board of Education. Our campaign will focus on making the 124th Assembly District a player in Albany,” said Randy Reid
The 124th Assembly District runs from the Elmira-Corning Regional Airport to the Binghamton Regional Airport in the Town of Maine along the I-86 Corridor. There are so many development opportunities for our region and we need an experienced leader, who will champion our area. We haven’t had leadership from our Assembly Representative since George Winner and Tom O’Mara were in the Assembly.
My wife and I were small business owners who faced challenges. I will be that voice in Albany for Main St. Reducing small business taxes, opening up access to capital and working to ensure proposed legislation will not stifle growth, are critical drivers that we will be working hard to achieve. Small businesses are the backbone of the community. Small businesses support their families and help keep the communities a vital place to live and work. I will be the advocate in Albany to fight for you and that’s why I’m running.
“For everyday working voters I also understand what its like to live paycheck to paycheck while trying to pay bills. My wife and I experienced this when we first were married 22 years ago. Recently, we overcame bankruptcy in our businesses so I know the struggle is real.” Reid said.
