About the District 

Campaign Website

About Anthony:

Anthony Brindisi has been an outspoken advocate for public schools throughout his career. He’s a political reformer who was named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the five “Young Guns” in the NY State Assembly.

Brindisi is also known as a tireless supporter of the Upstate New York community that he represents. An independent voice, Brindisi doesn’t care what your party line is, he has a proven record working with anyone, at any time, to get things done and bring positive change and new jobs to his community.

In the Assembly, Brindisi led and was victorious in his fights to increase educational funding to lower income school districts in the state, bolster apprenticeship programs, increase job training, and bring high tech manufacturing and economic development to the Mohawk Valley region.

Brindisi, thirty-nine years old, was born and raised in Utica where he resides with his wife and high school sweetheart Erica McGovern Brindisi, a biology professor at Mohawk Valley Community College, and their two young children, Anthony, Jr. and Lily Grace.

Elected to the Assembly 2011, Brindisi earned a reputation for principled bipartisanship and has become a voice for seniors, veterans, nurses, teachers, children and public school funding.

In an age of hyper-partisanship, Brindisi has been able to help turn state deficits into surpluses, deliver middle-class tax cuts, invest in infrastructure, and protect defense installations in the state from closure.
