Today, Assemblyman Gary D. Finch (R,C,I-Springport) is pleased to announce that he has received the endorsement of Mike Chapman, Chairman of the Cayuga County Legislature.

“I am honored to receive Chairman Chapman’s vote of confidence. He works diligently to craft legislation that promotes the prosperity of Cayuga County’s families, small businesses and farms. The Chairman and I continually work to act on the issues most important to Cayuga County residents,” said Finch.

Below is the full content of Chapman’s letter:

I write to my fellow New Yorkers asking for your support for our Assemblyman, Gary Finch.

We sent Gary to Albany to work for us as our representative to ensure our voices would be heard, our taxes used in meaningful ways and that our questions would be answered.

I had the opportunity to work with Gary for several years. Whenever our community had questions or faced problems, Gary responded and delivered.

Gary stands up for us in Albany and our community is better for it. His actions have protected jobs and enhanced our schools. Gary continues the fight making our region one of the most desired in the state.

Cayuga County residents asked Gary to restore funding for the disabled. He delivered. We asked Gary to assist with funding our “911 Emergency Response” project. He delivered. Gary has supported our Veteran’s Office and Office of the Aging. He partnered with law enforcement on his School Safety Task Force. Most recently, Gary secured Remediation for Owasco Lake and Dutch Hollow Brook – this is a first for Upstate New York.

From the time Gary was first elected until now, he has made constituent work his priority, solving problems and making our lives better.

For these reasons and many others, Assemblyman Finch has earned this endorsement and deserves our support on Election Day.


Michael H. Chapman
