Cortland County Democratic Committee Endorses Sarah Klee Hood for NY-22


The Cortland County Democratic Committee has announced in a release they have elected to endorse Democratic Candidate Sarah Klee Hood for the Democratic Primary for Congressional District NY-22, with the winner expected to face incumbent Republican Brandon Williams in November. The Democratic Primary is slated for June 25th.

“Sarah Klee Hood won the endorsement on the first round of balloting undertaken by committee members of the Cortland County Democratic Committee following a series of interview sessions with all candidates who were circulating petitions seeking to secure the Democratic Party’s ballot line on June 25. Committee members spent an hour with each candidate asking them to share their positions on a range of issues important to Cortland County, from rural transportation and health care to immigration and inflation.”

According to a release by the Cortland County Democratic Committee.

Sarah Klee Hood has built her campaign off a “grass-roots” style by making connections within the Cortland area. The Committee said in their release this is why she was easily chosen as the committee’s endorsement.

This year’s general election in November will have Cortland County split between two Congressional districts; NY-19, held by incumbent Marc Molinaro, and NY-22, held by incumbent Brandon Williams. Both are Republican representatives.

NY-22 covers the City of Cortland, Towns of Cortlandville, Homer, Scott, Preble, Truxton and Cuyler; it also includes the Village of Homer and Village of McGraw. NY-22 covers all of Onondaga and Madison County and parts of Cayuga and Oneida Counties.

NY-19 covers the Towns of Virgil, Hartford, Marathon, Freetown, Cincinnatus, and Willet. The Cortland County Democratic Committee says Josh Riley is facing a rematch against incumbent Molinaro this November. Riley earned the Committee’s endorsement back in March.
