State Senator Cathy Young has endorsed Tom Reed for Congress in New York's new 23rd Congressional District. "This election is of critical importance to the people of the Southern Tier," said Senator Young. "Tom Reed's commitment to private-sector job growth is what we need to move our region toward greater economic recovery. He is truly committed to reducing government spending, lowering taxes for our families and small businesses, and creating a business-friendly environment. With Tom Reed, we will have a strong and accessible voice in Washington."
"We are of course pleased to have Senator Young's support," said Reed. "She does an outstanding job for Western New York in Albany and I am pleased to team with her to fight for all of Upstate New York."
Senator Young represents the state's 57th Senate District, which covers Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and part of Livingston counties. She has served in the State Senate since 2005.
