Brandon Williams, a Republican from Cayuga County, has declared his candidacy for New York’s 22nd Congressional District.
Williams is from the Town of Sennett, where he runs an an orchard in addition to working for a California-based software company he helped found, according to Ithaca Voice. He is the third Republican seeking the GOP nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives seat.
“I want to see Central New York prosper again,” Williams said. “I want businesses to prosper, I want workers to prosper, I want the poor to prosper. Generational prosperity starts with education — quality public schools that are free from left-wing indoctrination, trade-schools that lead to solid skills and wages, and affordable
Community Colleges. We must also foster the growth of our small and medium sized businesses, actively encourage entrepreneurship, and we must attract investment into this region,” said Williams.
Williams has received backing from the Conservative Party Candidates Committee, which is made up of Conservative officials from across the district.
