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 spending, a weak national security, and a government bureaucracy that believes the best fix to any problem is an expanded federal one.

As Central New York’s representative in Congress, I’ve been fighting through partisan gridlock to change that. I’m focused on growing the economy to create jobs and keeping Americans safe in a dangerous world.

I’ll continue to be a strong voice for our community in Washington. Please support me as your Congressman for New York’s 24th Congressional District.

    MacKay concluded, “At a time when we’re seeing the far left and far right dominate politics, Central New Yorkers are fortunate to have a Congressman who puts aside partisan politics to achieve results.  The Independence Party is proud to once again stand with John Katko in 2020.”

    Congressman Katko said, “It is an honor to serve Wayne County in Congress — to fight on behalf of our local farmers and manufacturers, and to serve as a strong voice as we work to address the devastating flooding affecting our shoreline communities.  This work would not be possible without the unwavering support of Chair Nicosia-McCarthy and the Wayne County Republicans, and I’m humbled to again receive their endorsement.”
