Buffalo, New York - On Thursday, Amber Small, candidate for State Senate in the 60th District, filed over 4,600 petition signatures, to qualify for the Democratic, Working Families, and Women’s Equality ballot lines for the November Election. The number submitted is more than four times the amount needed to qualify for the Democratic line.
Small commented, “Throughout this campaign we have received a tremendous amount of grassroots support from the voters in the district. This number shows overwhelmingly that Democrats and members of other parties are soundly rejecting the rhetoric of Donald Trump and Carl Paladino and want a Senator who is an advocate for reforming the corruption in Albany, and focused on social, economic, and environmental justice.”
