To represent this district, I need to be in all of it and I need to hear from the people who call these places home. Together, our voices can get the attention of Albany and bring the change our state so desperately needs. Tonight, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we get to work. Thank you for your amazing support.”
Brynes a former Monroe County Assistant District Attorney and Rochester City Court Judge was making her first run for state office.
“Today, the voters of this district agreed that New York’s taxation is burdensome and its regulation excessive. They saw the emphasis that my campaign placed on the need for increased attention to infrastructure funding,” Brynes said. “Those closest to local government saw a need to offer mandate relief to municipalities. The people of the 133rd Assembly District have had enough of the corruption pouring out of our State Capitol. They want term limits for elected officials.”
