Former Rose Town Supervisor Kenan Baldridge is running for election in the 54th State Senate District for the third time.
Baldridge was defeated by incumbent Senator Pam Helming in 2016 and 2018. Like many candidates, Baldridge is getting used to a newly-drawn district. He says the 54th District as drawn by a court-appointed special master might be better for a Democratic candidate than the current 54th.
Baldridge says as a member of a likely Democratic Senate majority, he would be in a position to get more things done for his constituents but says he’ll work across the aisle with Republicans.
Baldridge has been a volunteer firefighter for 45 years and has extensive non-profit experience, helping from an organization that worked with volunteer ambulance services in Wayne County and helping turn around the fortunes of the Red Cross Syracuse-area blood collection operation. As Supervisor, Baldridge was appointed chair of the Health and Medical Committee, working with the county nursing home, and the Public Health and Mental Health Departments.
