NYLON – The CEO of Pinnacle Manufacturing Company Inc., a zinc and aluminum die casting manufacturing company in Batavia, has announced her candidacy for U.S. Congress.

According to a press release from Diana Kastenbaum (D), she will be running for New York’s 27th Congressional District, which includes all of Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, and Livingston counties and parts of Erie, Monroe, Niagara, and Ontario counties.

“As a small business owner from Batavia, I am well aware of the realities that face middle class families,” said Kastenbaum. “Using my years of experience as a businesswoman, I will bring new ideas and solutions to the problems we face in Western NY. We need a Member of Congress who will fight for Western NY on the issues that matter most; good paying jobs, ending income inequality, making college more affordable, and providing access to affordable healthcare. Where Congress has failed us, I will lead.”

Kastenbaum’s family has owned and operated Pinnacle, a zinc and aluminum dye casting manufacturing company, since 1972. She is a graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Diana is married to actor and comedian Hiram Kasten. Their daughter, Millicent, is a senior government major at Cornell University.
