Working Families Party backs Porsch for D.A.

The Working Families Party announced that it is endorsing Barry Porsch as its candidate for the office of Seneca County District Attorney. A local screening committee of Party members conducted a rigorous interview of three candidates for the position: Porsch of Seneca Falls, Richard Swinehart of Waterloo, and Robert Mascari of Onondaga County.The local chapter of the Party determined, as confirmed by the Party’s statewide Executive Committee, that Porsch was the most qualified candidate to represent the working people of Seneca County as their next District Attorney. One of the Working Families Party members who interviewed the three candidates stated that Porsch was “the most powerfully moving and energizing politician I have had the pleasure of meeting in my many years of activism.” Porsch said that he is honored to receive the support of the middle class and working class voters who make up the Party.According to the Working Families Party’s website, it is “fighting to bring back the American Dream” and seeks to hold politicians “accountable to working people, instead of big-money backers.” The Working Families Party’s candidates are found on Row E on the ballot.Porsch served nearly four years as a Seneca Falls village justice in the 1990s. For the past 15 years, Porsch has served as a court attorney at the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court and currently holds the position of Principal Appellate Court Attorney.
