Shakes Hands, Kicks Off Canvassing Effort

Candidate Matt Castelli travels the 15 counties of the 21st Congressional District, spreading the message of Country Over Party. He has appeared for multiple events in Herkimer County during the campaign season and stopped in Little Falls on Sunday for the start of a canvassing drive there and in Herkimer, Ilion and Mohawk.

The Herkimer Democratic Committee teamed with Indivisible Mohawk Valley, gathering with the candidate before heading out to meet voters. One Indivisible member commented, “one candidate is extreme, one is not, and that candidate is Matt Castelli.” A Democratic Committee member noted, “Matt walked in and shook my hand. I thanked him and started talking. He listened. He actually listened. That means a lot to me.”

Castelli, who is challenging incumbent Elise Stefanik, is running as a Democrat but also running as an independent on the Moderate Party line.
