John Plumb Kicks Off Designating Petitions in Hometown
Jamestown Area Democrat Collects Petition Signatures in Randolph
Randolph, New York – John Plumb, Navy Reserve Commander and candidate for Congress in New York’s 23rd district, began circulating petitions to secure a place on the ballot today in his hometown of Randolph, NY.
“It was important for me to kick this off where it all began, right here in Randolph,” said Plumb. “My family has over four generations of history in Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties, and it would be an honor to serve my friends and neighbors by representing them and the entire district in Congress.”
John Plumb was born in Jamestown, NY to Marie and John Plumb who still live in the same house in Randolph that Plumb grew up in. Before retiring, his mother taught physics at Jamestown Community College and his father was a JAG officer in the Army then a lawyer in Jamestown and the village attorney for Randolph.
“I am running for Congress because the gridlock and partisan games in Washington, DC are disproportionally hurting our rural communities,” said Plumb. “We need results for our district, not results for Washington, DC special interests.”
After eating pancakes with his parents at Vern’s Place, Plumb went door-to-door in Randolph collecting signatures in support of his candidacy. He then drove to Jamestown for his most important stop of the day: to visit his 94-year-old grandmother and watch her sign his first petition in Chautauqua County.
