Josh Jensen (R, C, I) was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 3, 2020. His district includes a portion of Monroe County, specifically the towns of Greece, Ogden, and Parma and the villages of Hilton and Spencerport.
Josh uses his leadership and public service background to be a common sense voice for those in his district, and across New York State. He believes the state needs to cut unnecessary spending and reduce taxes on middle class families and small businesses, and push for the increased protection of our families and neighborhoods through enhanced public safety initiatives.
Josh is a graduate of Niagara University and Hilton High School. Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Jensen served as the Town of Greece's 3rd Ward Councilman. As a councilman, he supported proposals that lowered taxes, supported local police, and prioritized the maintenance and improvement of vital infrastructure.
He previously worked for Sen. Joe Robach, serving as Director of Communications and Director of Community Affairs and Public Policy. Additionally, he served as the Director of Communications at one of Upstate New York’s largest nursing homes. He has also proudly volunteered with the Hilton Education Foundation and Rochester area chapter of the National Fallen Firefighters.
Josh resides in Town of Greece with his wife, Casey, and their children, Margot and Brendan.
