Press Release from Tracy Mitrano for Congress
PENN YAN—Today, Democratic Congressional candidate Tracy Mitrano (NY-23) announced that her campaign has undergone an energetic relaunch after being certified as the official Democratic nominee for New York’s 23rd District by the New York State Board of Election Commissioners (BOE) and raising over $175,000 in the month of July.
“I am thrilled that our message of economic opportunity has inspired this district into action. July was a record-setting month for fundraising, and our volunteer base is growing rapidly—clear evidence of the grassroots energy in this district and an appetite for real solutions to the problems facing our citizens,” Mitrano said.
“The truth is clear: our message of providing high-quality affordable health care, guaranteeing a good education, investing in physical and digital infrastructure, and protecting our natural resources is resonating with the people of the 23rd District. There is no stopping the momentum of this campaign.”
On Wednesday, August 8, 2018 the BOE convened to tally the results from each county within the 23rd District and declared Mitrano the winner of a hard-fought five-way primary election.
After Mitrano won the primary election last month, the campaign employed a robust fundraising effort that broke previous records. Additionally, the campaign surpassed 1,100 active volunteers.
