Rochester Business Alliance Endorses O’Brien 

Last Friday, the Rochester Business Alliance (RBA) endorsed State Senator Ted O’Brien (D-), a first-term incumbent who is being challenged by Republican Rich Funke.

O’Brien said:

“I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Rochester Business Alliance. Having the RBA’s acknowledgement that the work I am doing in the State Senate helps our region prosper and grow is tremendously rewarding. In my first term, I’ve fought tirelessly to reduce the cost of living and doing business in Upstate New York…I thank RBA for its endorsement, and look forward to continuing my work to usher in a new era of job creation in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region.”
