Why Vote For Renna?
I chose to run for State Senate as I saw a state continuing to fail its responsibilities to its citizens. I’m more motivated than ever to this campaign as, through this pandemic it has become abundantly clear, CNY needs someone with my background in small business and financial management to renew the state’s fiscal responsibility, assist our small business community in its recovery, and rebuild trust and confidence in public safety.
The 50th Senate District seat has been vacant since Bob Antonacci was elected to the State Supreme Court in November of 2019. A special election was originally scheduled for April, postponed to June, but then ultimately cancelled by Governor Andrew Cuomo due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The seat had been held for years by Republican John DeFrancisco who retired in 2018. Onondaga County Comptroller Bob Antonacci edged out Democrat John Mannion during the 2018 election.
