New York State Assembly candidate Peterson Vazquez met recently with several notable Republican leaders and elected officials in Dallas as part of the Future Majority Project Summit.
The summit is an effort to elect Latino Republicans to local, state and federal offices.
Vazquez, a Rochester native, is the Republican candidate for the 138th Assembly District which includes the towns of Chili and Henrietta and portions of the city of Rochester.
“Peterson Vazquez is an exceptional candidate to represent the constituents of the 138th Assembly District,” said Monroe County Republican Chairman Bill Reilich. “He has vowed to put the needs of the constituents at the forefront and will fight for lower taxes, creating jobs and ensuring public safety.”
Vazquez spent 16 years in the U.S. Army before starting his own business. His experience and roots in the Latino community have caught the eye of the Republican State Leadership Committee, which invited him and other Latino candidates to the summit.
Vazquez is a two-time graduate of Roberts Wesleyan College with a Bachelor of Science in organizational management with business emphasis and a Master of Science in strategic leadership.
