Seneca County GOP backs Sen. Helming for a second term

New York State Senator Pam Helming (R-54) has received the endorsement of the Seneca County Republican Party, according to a press release obtained on Saturday.

Chairman of the Seneca County Republican Committee Tom Fox said, “As Chairman of the Seneca County Republican Committee, I am proud to support Senator Helming for re-election. She has delivered for local communities and stayed laser focused on the issues important to taxpayers.”

Fox said that working hard to visit every corner of the district to meet with local residents has been a priority for Sen. Helming, who is coming up on the completion of her first term. “She has always been available and accessible to the voters and that is critically important. We know we can trust her to be an aggressive fighter for local taxpayers in Seneca County.”

Pam Helming, and her husband Gary, have been residents of Canandaigua for over thirty years and have raised their two children, Catherine and Evan, in the local schools and community.

“It has been an honor and privilege to represent the hardworking taxpayers of Seneca County for the last year-and-a-half. As State Senator, I have worked to serve our communities and fight for the issues important to local families,” Helming said in a prepared statement. “I am honored to have the support of the Seneca County Republican Committee and look forward to continuing to work with Chairman Fox.”

Sen. Helming is a graduate of Hiram College. She has worked with developmentally disabled individuals and followed that career path, which led her to managing several group homes. She later worked as the Director of Asset Management for a local real estate development firm and worked in the regulatory compliance field.

She served on the town board, and was elected Town Supervisor of Canandaigua. As New York State Senator, Pam serves as Senate Chair of the Legislative Commission on Rural Resources and Vice Chair of the Crime Victims, Crime and Correction Committee.

The 54th Senatorial District includes parts of Ontario, Cayuga, Tompkins, and Monroe Counties, as well as all of Wayne and Seneca Counties.
