Nate in the House?

Nathan Shinagawa ’05, MA ’09, took more than 60 percent of the vote June 26 to win the Democratic Party endorsement in his run for New York’s 23rd Congressional district seat.

Shinagawa, 28 and a liberal member of the Tompkins County Legislature, faces conservative Republican Tom Reed.

A hospital administrator with a strong interest in health care, Shinagawa will need to sell his progressive agenda in the newly drawn 23rd district, which extends from Ithaca to Jamestown.

He can always turn to another young Cornell pol: Shinagawa’s roommate Svante Myrick ’09 was elected mayor last fall.
