With pride, SDWNY announces our endorsement of Jim O'Donnell for election to the 27 District of the US House of Representatives.
"Jim O'Donnell is the kind of Democrat, and the kind of public servant, we need more of in the House of Representatives," said Bryan Ball, president of SDWNY. "As a Marine, and currently a Lieutenant with the Buffalo Police Department, Jim has dedicated his life to public service, and will be the fresh, progressive voice of the people the 27th District currently needs. It is no secret that the current Representative Chris Collins has misused the office entrusted to him, and continued to be the opponent of justice and equality he has been throughout his career in the private and public sector. Jim O'Donnell is running to represent every woman, man and child in the 27th District, and will be the practical, hard working representative the district so sorely lacks."
Jim O'Donnell does not have a primary election for the Democratic Nomination. He will run against incumbent Republican Rep. Chris Collins in the November General Election.
