Jeremy Cooney hosted the grand opening of his new Brighton office at 12 Corners on Aug. 31.
Cooney, who is running in the 56th Senate District, chose the location to show his commitment to the area’s citizens. Cooney’s opponent in November, Republican Sen. Joseph Robach, closed his Brighton office over a decade ago.
This new campaign office will function as a meeting place where Cooney and his team can connect with members of the community and organize the many volunteers who have joined the campaign.
“We are proud to have a Brighton home for this campaign,” said Cooney at the opening earlier today. “We are out meeting neighbors in the 56th District every night and what we hear across the area is that citizens are ready for change. Having a consistent presence in Brighton will allow us to mobilize our team and be more accessible to the people who call the 56th District home so we can bring that change come November.”
The Hon. Bill Moehle, Brighton town supervisor, was on hand with remarks for the ribbon cutting as well as Jamie Romeo, chairwoman of the Monroe County Democratic Committee and Democratic candidate for the 136th Assembly District.
“I have worked with Jeremy, particularly while he worked for the city of Rochester, and I know how committed he is to serving our community,” said Moehle. “I am pleased that he is opening his campaign office in the heart of Brighton’s 12 Corners neighborhood and I know that he will continue to listen and respond to all Brighton residents during this campaign.”
“Jeremy will proudly represent Brighton,” said Moehle. “He has already showed his love for the town through his work in city hall and is a candidate who we regularly see knocking on doors and listening to the people of Brighton. We are delighted to have his campaign headquarters in the heart of our 12 Corners business district.”
“It is time we elect a Democrat to the 56th Senate District,” said Romeo. “For too long it has been ‘more of the same’ in Albany, and Jeremy will represent the values of Brighton and the 56th District in the New York State Legislature.”
“Jeremy is a lifelong ‘Rochesterian’ and a strong advocate for Brighton,” said Sandy Frankel, former Brighton town supervisor. “I was Jeremy’s Eagle Scout mentor, and I am proud to watch him grow over his career and support his run for New York State Senate. I look forward to his continued work in and for the Brighton community.”
“I had heard about Jeremy’s reputation for hard work and getting things done from a distance for years. Over the past few months, I have gotten to see first-hand the depth of his understanding of the issues that affect Brighton and his commitment to helping the people of this community. The 56th District will be well represented by Jeremy and the Brighton Democratic Committee is thrilled to support his candidacy for New York State Senate,” said Dan Aman, Brighton town Democratic leader.
