Brockport, N.Y. (February 17, 2019) — Lifelong resident of Monroe County JW Cook announces his candidacy representing the 20th Legislative District of Monroe County.
The Brockport High School alum made his way back to his roots after graduating from St. Bonaventure University with his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Now serving as the Marketing Coordinator at RE/MAX Titanium and a member of the Brockport Lions Club, JW chose to bring home the lessons he learned in servant leadership and give back to the community that built him.
“When you’re deeply connected with the community that built you, you can’t help but want to give back to the place you have always called home,” said JW.
JW was instrumental in coordinating community events like “Save the Clock Tower” and “Drink and Dance for Diabetes” that raised over $21,500 and $1,200 respectively.
“I believe in a local government that supports jobs. I believe in a local government that passes responsible budgets; a budget that creates a safe atmosphere for our children, and effectively combats the opioid crisis that has harmed our community,” said JW.
JW hopes to build on his experience as a leader in the village of Brockport. “I am running for County Legislator because I believe that together we can build a vibrant, healthy and safe community. Not only for the 20th District, but for all of Monroe County.”
District 20 represents the communities of Greece, Ogden, and Sweden.
