Voters across Erie County and throughout New York’s 27th Congressional District have a chance to send a message and help support responsible and unifying leadership in the Town of Hamburg.

Randy Hoak will bring over 20 years of experience as an advocate to stand up for the community where he has lived for 42 years. Hoak will use his community-building experience to bring groups together and continue to move Hamburg forward.

This campaign aims to connect communities and bring people together. Your support sets an example for the rest of the area that unity, integrity and sensibility are more powerful than political ambitions.
