Tedisco’s Got the Big ‘Mo

49th Senate District candidate scores major grassroots endorsements of Saratoga, Schenectady & Hamilton County GOP Committees; wins pivotal statewide Independence Party line


            Jim Tedisco has got the big ‘mo as grassroots momentum continues to build with support from people who want to see the Assemblyman become the next New York State Senator for the 49th Senate District.


            Last night, the Saratoga County Republican Committee unanimously endorsed Tedisco for the open senate seat.  Republicans in Saratoga County join the Schenectady County and Hamilton County Republican Committees to endorse Tedisco, of Glenville, to be a strong and independent voice in the Senate. 


The Independence Party of New York State also has endorsed Tedisco to run on their ballot line, which has proven to be important to many election victories. 

The Fulton and Herkimer County Republican Committees plan on meeting to endorse in the next two weeks.


            Tedisco has been endorsed by Senator Hugh T. Farley to succeed him in the Senate seat and has won the backing of scores of local officials representing all the counties of the 49th Senate District.


“I’m honored to receive these enthusiastic grassroots endorsements to be a strong and independent voice for the people and stand up for Upstate New York in the State Senate,” said Tedisco. “The district that I will represent might be getting bigger, but I’m still going to be the same Jim Tedisco -- as independent and outspoken as ever in speaking up and telling it like it is when it comes to reforming Albany and improving the quality of life for New Yorkers.”


Tedisco received the most votes statewide in 2014 – nearly 34,000 – of any Assembly candidate in a contested race out of 150 state Assembly seats.


The 49th State Senate District includes parts of Saratoga, Schenectady and Herkimer Counties and all of Fulton and Hamilton Counties.
