A Message from John

Growing up in a family of seven kids, I learned at an early age about the importance of standing up to be heard and in fighting for what you believe.

I worry greatly about the America we are passing on to our children. Overwhelming debt. Unsustainable entitlement spending. And a government bureaucracy that believes the best fix to any problem is an expanded federal one.

I will stand up and fight to change that.

Help me become the representative Central New York needs to make Washington work for us again. Support me as your Congressman for New York’s 24th Congressional District.

Experienced and Tested

As a federal prosecutor, John Katko has helped clean up his share of messes. Now he’s prepared to help clean up the biggest mess of all – the one in Washington – by running for U.S. Congress.

  • Bringing People Together.

    In his role as a leader of the Syracuse Gang Violence Task Force, John has brought prosecutors, police, clergy, community leaders, and neighbors from differing backgrounds together to successfully reduce violence crime and improve the quality of life in targeted neighborhoods within our community.

  • Fighting for All.

    John has spent the last sixteen years traveling across Upstate New York in his role as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, prosecuting corrupt politicians, business frauds, drug traffickers, and gang members and making our community safer for every Central New York family regardless of race, creed, culture, or address.

  • Focused on Results.

    John’s entire professional career rested on his fair and decisive conviction of those who break the law, cheat the system, and harm our children. His dangerous work required first time success, and as a federal prosecutor, he delivered. It’s time to take that results-focused success to Congress to work for us in Washington.

  • Bipartisan Recognition.

    John has served under three different U.S. Presidents and received the highest professional honors from multiple Attorneys General – from both parties – and the Director of the FBI.
