OSWEGO – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has announced her endorsement of Amy Tresidder for mayor of the city of Oswego, emphasizing Tresidder’s years of experience as a county legislator and her record of fighting for Oswego families.
“Amy Tresidder has proven her commitment to working tirelessly to better the lives of Oswego families. She has shown bold leadership in the Oswego County Legislature and will bring this record of positive leadership to the mayor’s office,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I’m proud to endorse Amy Tresidder for Mayor of Oswego.”
Gillibrand’s endorsement puts her on a growing list of current and former New York State leaders who have backed Tresidder in the mayoral race, including former Congressman Bill Owens and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner.
“I’m honored to have Senator Gillibrand’s support,” said Tresidder. “I’m proud that she recognizes how hard I have fought on behalf of Oswego taxpayers during my years in the county legislature. As mayor, I will keep working just as hard to provide independent, accountable, and steady-handed leadership for Oswego’s families and businesses.”
If elected on Tuesday, Tresidder, a 30-year resident of Oswego, would be the first female mayor in the city’s history.
