Welcome to my Web site. I am glad you are interested in learning more about my role as Senator of the 50th State Senate District.


Here you will find background information about my service to the community, as well as continuing updates about how I am representing your voice in Albany.




On March 1, 2014, Senator John A. DeFrancisco (R-I-C, Syracuse) received the Onondaga County Republican Committee’s designation for the 50th State Senate District. Senator DeFrancisco who is seeking a 12th term in office says, “I look forward to working hard to win reelection and continuing to serve the Central New York community. My commitment remains as strong today as it did when I first took office. I will continue to fight for the best interests of the residents of my district.” 




I always appreciate feedback from my constituents. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have about our district or about State government.
