A conversation with State Senator Jeremy Cooney

Jeremy Cooney is a parishioner at Christ Church, Rochester and has recently been elected to represent the New York 56th Senate District.  

Jeremy graduated from the Rochester City School District, and went on to graduate with honors in public policy from Hobart College and then obtain a law degree from Albany Law School. He was named “Forty Under 40” by the Rochester Business Journal and is a proud Eagle Scout.

Jeremy got his start working on Capitol Hill for the late U.S. Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and has gone on to work for two New York Governors and the Mayor of Rochester.  We congratulate Jeremy as he serves the New York 56th Senate District.

With a deep commitment to creating the Rochester of tomorrow, Jeremy is passionate about investing in quality public schools, affordable housing, universal health care, reducing our carbon footprint, and helping families find pathways out of poverty.
