Assemblyman Mark Johns (R,C, I-Webster) today announced that in addition to the Monroe County Republican Party endorsement, he has received the endorsements of the County Conservative and Independence parties in his re-election bid for the New York State Assembly.
“I am proud to have earned the endorsements of the Conservative and Independence parties of Monroe County,” said Assemblyman Mark Johns. “These parties and their voters know that I will represent their values and ideals in Albany as I continue to work hard and fight for the families, residents and businesses of the 135th Assembly District.”
Johns’ predecessor, David Koon, was previously endorsed by the Independence Party. Assemblyman Johns previously received the Conservative Party endorsement in his first bid for the State Assembly.
Johns currently represents the towns of Perinton, Penfield and Webster and the villages of Fairport, East Rochester and Webster in the State’s 135th Assembly District. Johns was first elected to the position in 2010 after defeating 15-year incumbent David Koon.
Assemblyman Johns’ accomplishments in his first term in the State Assembly include voting for a statewide property tax cap, supporting two on-time state budgets which reduced spending and closed a multi-billion dollar deficit, voting for the lowest middle class tax rate in nearly 60 years and supporting ethics reform to clean up Albany. Johns also invested in job creation, restored cuts to the EPIC program and reinstated the sales tax exemption on clothing purchases under $110.
Johns’ goals for his next term include continuing to fight for lower taxes for residents, homeowners and businesses, enacting meaningful mandate relief for local governments and school districts and consolidating and streamlining services to cut costs and make government more efficient.
