OWEGO, N.Y. (WENY) – Thirty year military veteran and Owego resident Max Della Pia announced his candidacy for congress.
Della Pia talks about some of the changes he wants to see in the 23rd district. Among them related to jobs, infrastructure, and the future of the district.
“Our children should not have to go to a Walmart parking lot for WiFi to do their homework,” said Della Pia. “Our school bus drivers and first responders deserve safe roads to drive on. Our workforce needs good-paying, union jobs to reinvigorate our local economy. Those investments are headed to our district, thanks to President Biden, Democrats, and even a handful of Republicans. But when my opponent had the chance to invest in these desperately needed upgrades, she chose political grandstanding over her own constituents. I refuse to allow Tenney to come into our district and declare that she is going to be our next Member of Congress without answering for her negligent record.”
The veteran joins an already busy field of candidates in the 23rd district including four republican candidates already on the ballot.
The primaries will take place on June 28th.
