To the Citizens of Cayuga County,

As a career prosecutor, dedicated to keeping our community safe, I am seeking your support for Cayuga County District Attorney. Family and community have always been important to my husband and me. We are very grateful to be a part of this community. For those who may not know, our ties to Cayuga County run strong. My grandfather taught English at East High School in the 50s and 60s and Auburn High School in the 1970s; my uncle was a teacher and principal at Weedsport High School for two decades; my aunt and uncle are lifelong residents; and my cousin is the Director of Planning and Economic Development for the City of Auburn.

If elected to be your District Attorney, I will bring unmatched experience, a tireless work ethic, and an unwavering commitment to justice for all citizens in all cases. It would be honor and privilege to receive your vote this upcoming election. Please reach out and join our team. As always, I appreciate your continued support.

Yours Truly,

Brittany with her husband Mike and Goldendoodle Moose
