October 31, 2018 (Rochester, NY) -- City Newspaper today endorsed Jen Lunsford for State Senate in the 55th District.* "Democrats have a chance to win the majority in the Senate, which will be important for advancing progressive issues," writes Jeremy Moule of City Newspaper.** The Democrats running in both the 55th and 56th Districts, writes Moule, "are smart, progressive candidates with a good grasp of the issues they would face in the Senate..." while their Republican opponents "continue to vote with their party, blocking legislation New Yorkers need."
Lunsford stated she was "proud to receive City Newspaper's endorsement." She went on to say, "City Newspaper has a long history of providing topical, in-depth coverage of issues important to the people of Rochester. I am grateful to have real journalists covering real news here in our city. I look forward to fostering an open, transparant relationship with our local media while serving in Albany."
