May 16, 2022

HORNELL, NY – Wlea News has gotten a copy of what is being described as the 1st draft of the new 23rd Congressional District Map.  We are told that this is only the first draft and that a final version will be released later this week.  The counties included are: Schuyler, Chemung, Steuben, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and part of Erie County. 

The new 23rd district is a greyish-blue color, on the lower left side of the state map.  

Possible GOP candidates are: Steuben County Republican Chair Joe Sempolinski, State Senator George Borrello, former State Senator Cathy Young and Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.  Tenney does not live in the district, but there are no requirements for living inside a district for congressional races.  For the Democrats: Tioga County’s Max Della Pia.
