My name is Braiden McElhaney and I have been researching politics for over 2 years. I no longer, but previously did volunteer for my local county’s Board of Elections. I am a Student Senator at Jamestown Community College in Jamestown, NY. I am an online social media political influencer and activist. I have participated in community outreach in what is now called Scouts of America and as an Eagle Scout. I have also volunteered for the Joe Biden Campaign. I am also a 2026 New York State Senate Candidate for the 57th District of New York. I believe that our country is in desperate need of growth and reform. I believe that human rights are at stake and the aspects of government that are implemented right now will affect the livelihoods of Americans for generations! Young people need to get involved as we are the future of this world and it is time to step up and make the change that we want to see.
