State Senate candidate Pam Helming recently received endorsement from the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee, The Committee for a Strong Economy.

“I thank the Chamber of Commerce for its support and commitment to promoting business and economic development in our Finger Lakes region,” said Helming, who currently serves as Canandaigua town supervisor. “As town supervisor, I worked to increase building projects in our area by 60 percent, and brought numerous new businesses to our community. I look forward to continuing those efforts throughout our region to ensure growth and prosperity so that our children and our businesses don’t have to leave the state to be successful.”

GRCC serves nine counties in the Finger Lakes region, including Monroe, Ontario, Wayne and Yates. Helming is the Republican, Conservative and Independence candidate for the open 54th District State Senate seat.
