U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has endorsed Ryan Davis for Phelps Town Supervisor. He’s taking on Republican incumbent Norm Teed.
Davis is a graduate of Midlakes High School and SUNY Geneseo and has a long record of service to the community, which Sen. Schumer noted in his endorsement.
“Ryan Davis is an experienced leader dedicated to serving his hometown of Phelps, which is why I am glad to endorse him this November,” Sen. Schumer said. “With his deep local roots and community values, combined with his experience as a union electrician and longtime member of the school board, Ryan has the knowledge and ideas to move the community forward. Ryan’s focus on transparency in government — where all community members have a seat at the table — will create an inclusive government to empower and serve residents, businesses, and the Phelps community.”
Davis has been a longtime member and former President of the Phelps-Clifton Springs Board of Education. He has also volunteered for several youth athletic programs and the American Legion Seeley B. Parish Post 457 and provided key support to the “Midlakes Strong” community chicken barbecue that delivered approximately 3,000 dinners and 900 packages of groceries to local families at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The union electrician and President of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 840 has already received cross-party support in his campaign for Phelps Town Supervisor. Former NYS Senator, Michael F. Nozzolio in a letter of support said. “Throughout his life Ryan Davis charted a course on the path of service to others, following in the excellent example set by his parents’ extensive community service,” Nozzolio explained.
Davis has been endorsed by the Town of Phelps Democratic Party, the independent Right for Phelps party, the Rochester-Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation. Locally Davis has also gained the endorsement of businessman and former Village of Phelps Mayor, Jim Cheney.
