Steuben County Democrat Chair Shawn Hogan emailed us this morning, a link to a Buffalo News story, about how Max Della Pia (D, Tioga County, NY) has announced that he is runnning for congress in the 23rd. The reason – because Della Pia is strongly opposed to Republican Claudia Tenney.
Hogan says, Della Pia is a 30 year U.S. Air Force Veteran, who has a law degree and worked for many years for military manufacturer Lockheed Martin.
This is not Max Della Pia’s first time in upstate New York politics. “He ran about four years ago in a Democratic Primary, and lost by a slim margin,” Hogan tells Wlea.
Hogan and Della Pia both quoted a slogan used by former Congressman Stan Lundine, “he is from the district and for the district”.
