UTICA - Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi held his own fundraiser in the east end of Utica, Monday night. The Democratic Congressional candidate in New York’s 22nd district welcomed the public to the Chesterfield Restaurant for a “people-powered fundraiser”. While over 500 people attended, President Trump was not too far down the street.

“Anytime the President comes to town it is a good thing,” said Brindisi. “I just think it is a little bit unfortunate that people have to pay 15,000 dollars to see him.”

On the flip side, the Assemblyman only charged his guests ten dollars per person. He told WKTV that all the money raised tonight was going to support his “grassroots” campaign, one of which only has three more months left.

“We need help knocking on doors,” said Brindisi. “Our competitor is outspending us on TV with her Super PAC, and we need to keep us competitive and get our message out there.”

Summing up the night, Brindisi told WKTV if elected he has promises for the people of New York.

“We can promise you that they will have a representative that is independent, who works with Democrats and Republicans, who works on protecting health care, Medicare, and social security,” said Brindisi. “That is what we need in Washington right now.”
