MARCY, N.Y. -- Republican John Zielinski has launched a campaign for the 119th district Assembly seat.

Zielinski, 68, will run against incumbent Democrat, Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon.

“The state Assembly – and all of state government – is currently dominated by ultra-liberal downstate politicians who are pushing policies that are completely out of touch with the Mohawk Valley,” said Zielinski. “Whether it’s the bail reform law that let dangerous criminals back on the streets, free college tuition for illegal immigrants, or any other of their absurd policies, the good people of the 119th District deserve someone who will fight back for our values.”

The 119th District covers the cities of Utica and Rome, and the towns of Floyd, Marcy and Whitestown in Oneida County, as well as the town of Frankfort in Herkimer County.

Zielinski is a Certified Public Accountant who has four years of experience in public accounting, more than 17 years in manufacturing, and 19 years with commercial, service and non-profit organizations.

Zielinski is a graduate of Westmoreland High School. He currently lives in Marcy with his wife of 31 years, Kate. He is the father of four children, including two who service in the U.S. military.
