Working Families Party Endorses Amber Small for State Senate in 60th District
This week, the Upstate Regional Council of the Working Families Party has voted to recommend the endorsement of Amber Small for State Senate in the 60th District. This paves the way for Small to receive the Working Families ballot line in November 2016 Election for State Senate. Earlier this week, Small received the endorsement of the Erie County Democratic Committee, solidifying her position as the presumptive challenger to a Republican opponent in November.
Amber commented “I am proud to have the support from the Working Families Party because our values of fighting for the hardworking families of Western New York are very much aligned. I will work closely with the WFP to support Safe Staffing for our nurses, provide quality public education for all our children, and implement wages that dignify all workers and strengthen our economy.”
Small continued,“This race will be a choice between a community advocate who stands for ethics reform in government, supporting small businesses and middle class workers, and equality for all people, or an out of touch 1%er who represents big business, back door politics as usual, and the conservative agenda.”
