Antonio Delgado was born and raised in Schenectady, New York, where he learned the value of hard work, service, and discipline from his parents, who both worked for General Electric. A graduate of Colgate University, he was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford before attending Harvard Law School, where he met his wife Lacey. After a stint as an entrepreneur, where he worked with young people to empower them through the art of music, Antonio became a lawyer, donating thousands of hours of pro-bono legal services to underserved communities. He believes that criminal justice reform is one of the greatest issues facing our country. In Congress, Antonio will give a voice to working families and is determined to restore the American Dream through well-paying jobs and a healthcare system that allows both access and affordability, including Medicare for all. He will be a progressive voice advocating for the working families of the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
