The New York Young Republican Club is proud to endorse Josh Mertzlufft for New York State’s 60th Senate District seat. A lifelong Western New Yorker, Josh’s fresh energy, passion for bringing people together, and practical professional background position him as the ideal candidate for NY-60. After graduating from Houghton College in Western New York with an Applied Physics degree and working as a mechanical engineer, Josh completed his J.D. at the University at Buffalo. Now an attorney in Buffalo, he lives in Hamburg with his wife and young son. Josh’s experience as an elected Speaker of Houghton’s Student Government Senate and Editor-in-Chief of the Buffalo Law Review demonstrates his fair-minded, critical thinking skills that are needed in Albany now more than ever before. He firmly believes Western New York values, including integrity, grace, and unity—all integral to being a good neighbor—are what New York State needs in a time of hyper-partisan, divided politics. The New York Young Republican Club urges all voters within New York’s 60th Senate District to stop the advance of socialism and hyper-partisanship and support Josh Mertzlufft to be their next State Senator.
