Local Congressional Candidate Walking Across NY 23rd District

Posted: Updated:

NY 23rd Congressional District (WENY)-- One Congressional candidate for New York's 23rd District is making his way across the area to meet with potential constituents. Only he's doing it completely on foot.

     Candidate Ian Golden is making his way across the 450 mile, 11 county 23rd Congressional District by walking. Golden started his journey Tuesday, leaving from Geneva. Over the next 30 days, Golden plans to visit with local farmers, restaurants, businesses, and potential constituents. He also plans to attend various community events. Golden says the goal of this journey is to meet with local residents on their terms. 

     “This is about getting out from behind the screen, really taking the time to listen and connect. I want to have those discussions about the concerns and visions of the people throughout the district, regardless of party affiliation,” Golden explains.

     As of Wednesday morning, Golden was in Penn Yan. More information about Golden's journey can be found on his campaign website.
