In 2014, Claudia ran for Congress in New York’s 22nd District and was narrowly defeated by incumbent Richard Hanna. Claudia is consistently ranked as the top conservative legislator in New York. Claudia votes against tax increases and has introduced legislation to reduce taxes. She was the first to sponsor a bill to fully repeal the SAFE Act.

She is currently co-owner and legal counsel to Mid-York Press, Inc., a commercial printing and manufacturing firm started by her maternal grandfather in 1946 in Hamilton, Madison County.  Claudia’s insight into public service has been shaped by experiences beyond politics, including juggling the demands of running a small business while raising her son as a single mother.
