State Assemblyman Mark Walczyk has announced that he has received the endorsement of nearly 130 local elected officials from throughout St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties.


Since becoming Assemblyman, Mark Walczyk has developed relationships and built bipartisan coalitions to fight for a better tomorrow for the Front Yard of America.  The list of local elected officials consists of Democrats, Republicans and Independents.  Walczyk has a proven record of working and advocating alongside local leaders of all political parties to ensure the North Country has a voice in the halls of Albany. 


“Over the past two years, I have watched Mark fight for the North Country, or as he has aptly nicknamed it, the Front Yard to America. While working across party lines, Mark has tirelessly worked to ensure that North Country has a seat at the table, and while we may disagree, as any Democrat and Republican are bound to do, at the end of the day, I know that he will do anything in his power to ensure that the North Country's voices are heard," said Village of Antwerp Mayor Jonathan P. Cole.


“I’ve known Mark for a number of years and have seen firsthand that his work ethic is second to none.  Mark has been an excellent Assemblyman and an even better friend.  He is the voice the North Country needs in Albany and I couldn’t be more proud to endorse him for State Assembly,” said St. Lawrence County Clerk Sandy Santamoor.


“It’s beyond humbling to have this kind of support from local leaders in St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties,” said Assemblyman Mark Walczyk.  “Since day one, I’ve worked to build coalitions and relationships to fight for the North Country.  I’m overwhelmed by the support from so many local elected officials, who have their fingers on the pulse of the community they represent.  I’m looking forward to continuing the work we’ve done to build a better tomorrow for the Front Yard of America.”
