NY-25: Joseph Morelle (D)

About the District

Campaign Website

About Joseph:
I am inspired by the promise of a future that is as strong, as resilient, and as bold as the people who call this great community home. I believe that, together, we can pick up Louise Slaughter’s mantle and fight to protect the fundamental ideals we all share: the need to ensure universal healthcare for all; to protect a woman’s right to choose; to keep our streets and children safe from the terror of gun violence; to create stronger economic opportunities for our working families; to fight against the opioid epidemic plaguing communities across our nation; and to dismantle the racial inequities that keep us all from achieving our full potential.

We need real leaders in Congress who are going to stand up and fight for the hardworking men and women in our community and ensure that our upstate values have a strong, unrelenting voice in Washington. With your help and support, we can build a brighter future for our community and all people who call this great nation home.

I was born and raised in Upstate New York and I have lived in the same Irondequoit neighborhood for most of my life. My father was a veteran of the Korean War and a lifetime member of the Plumbers and Pipefitters’ Union. Both he and my mother believed, with every ounce of their beings, in the value of hard work and the principles of honesty and integrity. These are values and lessons they instilled in me at a young age and they are values which drove my pursuit of a career in public service. From Monroe County Legislature to the State Assembly, I am proud to have spent three decades serving this community that I love dearly.

I care deeply about the future of Monroe County families and the direction of our nation. That is why I have spent my life in public service fighting to ease the burden on hardworking families, create opportunity for our children by strengthening our economy and our education system, and ensure our neighborhoods are safer and stronger than ever before.

There is undoubtedly a great deal of work before us, but I look forward to talking to my neighbors, listening to your concerns, and putting my experience to work for this incredible community.
