Five More Days


Dear friends,

Only five days separate us from the election. Eleven months after we first announced our campaign, we’re on the verge of sending the message to Albany that there’s no better time for change than right now. So many of you have taken the time to volunteer or have made one of the hundreds of small contributions that built this campaign from the ground up.

I’ve lived in Western New York my entire life and am so lucky to call this area my home. Through all of the highs and lows, the unpredictable weather, and the regeneration of our community, my love for my home has never faltered. I want to be your State Senator because I have the best interests of our community at heart.

Whether it’s enacting comprehensive ethics reform, repairing our outdated infrastructure, working to create a more effective school system or fighting to ensure equal rights for all, I will make sure that the interests that matter most to our community are fought for in Albany.
These may seem like lofty goals, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge.

I remind myself every day that no matter what obstacles our campaign faces, we’re doing this for the right reasons. It’s been an uphill battle, but what we’re fighting for makes it all worth it.

One of the main things that separates me from my opponent is my belief in working together, regardless of party affiliation, to find solutions to the issues that face our community rather than just covering them with a band-aid. Working together with those with whom you disagree is how we grow as people, and it’s how our community is going to grow and become stronger than we ever could imagine.

This election season has been taxing on everyone but I implore you all to never let up. Don’t let your voice be drowned out by corporate interests. Don’t settle for business-as-usual; we deserve better. Our community deserves someone who will fight for each and every person who calls the 60th District home. I know I am that person.

The real fight is just beginning. I’ll never stop advocating for my community and all of the wonderful diverse people it comprises; there is nowhere else I’d rather be. Be proud of who you are, be proud of our community, and let’s go win this thing!
