Mosher announces exploratory run for 121st Assembly district
Corey Mosher, a fourth-generation farmer and partner of Mosher Farms, announced Sunday that he is exploring a run for New York’s 121st Assembly District.
The district covers Madison County and portions of Oneida and Otsego counties. Republican John Salka currently has the seat.
“The 121st district needs an assemblyman that gives real representation and a stronger voice to the people of the district,” said Mosher in a statement. “I can be that assemblyman.”
Mosher stated that he is exploring a run for the 121st District because he believes the area needs a representative who does not just understand the struggles people endure in the 121st District, but also one that experiences those struggles firsthand on a daily basis.
Some of Mosher’s major issues include:
• Nearly one out of every five rural New Yorkers still does not have broadband access.
• Healthcare is inaccessible and unaffordable for too many in our communities.
• Upstate public schools are chronically underfunded.
• Childcare is grossly inadequate and out of reach for too many families.
• Long-term care remains a privilege, making it hard for seniors to age with dignity.
• Legislation written by Albany bureaucrats, and not business owners, is making it hard for family farms and upstate businesses to survive.
“There is no such thing as a strong upstate economy without a strong farm economy,” Mosher said. “The lack of access to broadband and poor infrastructure stands in the way of economic success for both our businesses and farms.”
Mosher serves as the Board Chairman of the Madison County Cooperative Extension, as a board member of the New York State Vegetable Growers’Association, and as a member of the National Barley Improvement Committee, according to information provided with Sunday’s announcement.
“I will be fighting for an Upstate New York where businesses prosper, where families choose to raise their children, and where family farms thrive,” said Mosher.
