A local attorney, and former engineer, is throwing his hat in the ring as a candidate for the New York State Senate.
Josh Mertzlufft, a Republican, is seeking to take over Chris Jacobs’ spot representing the state’s 60th District.
Mertzlufft is a life-long resident of western New York, graduating from Houghton College before obtaining his law degree at the University at Buffalo.
“Many people say ‘our votes don’t matter,’” Mertzlufft says. “We don’t have to settle for that. Together, we can change the story. That’s why I am running. I want to correct our state’s course to restore New York.”
