JW Cook, of Brockport, recently announced his candidacy to represent the 20th Legislative District of Monroe County.
The Brockport High School alumnus graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He works as the marketing coordinator at RE/MAX Titanium and is a member of the Brockport Lions Club.
“When you’re deeply connected with the community that built you, you can’t help but want to give back to the place you have always called home,” Cook said.
Cook helped coordinate community events like Save the Clock Tower, which raised over $21,500, and Drink and Dance for Diabetes, which raised over $1,200.
“I believe in a local government that supports jobs,” he said. “I believe in a local government that passes responsible budgets, a budget that creates a safe atmosphere for our children and effectively combats the opioid crisis that has harmed our community.”
Cook said he hopes to build on his experience as a leader in the village of Brockport.
“I am running for county legislator, because I believe that together we can build a vibrant, healthy and safe community not only for the 20th District, but for all of Monroe County,” he said.
District 20 represents the communities of Greece, Ogden and Sweden. Visit jwcook.org for information about his campaign.
