Wilt Takes New York Uprising's Pledge to
Demand Reform

Candidate joins group’s “Heroes of Reform”

Democratic state senate candidate Robin Wilt today signed New York Uprising’s pledge for change, joining a bi-partisan movement of leaders—including Mario Cuomo, Rudy Giuliani, and Ed Koch—demanding a thoroughgoing reform of state government.

Wilt’s pledge underlines her commitment to New York Uprising’s goals of responsible budgeting, ethics reform, and independent, non-partisan redistricting.

“After a period in Albany that has left voters hyperaware and understandably upset,” New York Uprising’s website says, “it is no longer enough to hear candidates talk the talk about Reform. This year is different, and New York Uprising is giving all candidates for state office a chance to show their true colors. Those who pledge their commitment are our Heroes of Reform.”

Wilt, running in the 56th district to unseat entrenched incumbent Joe Robach, is pleased to be among New York Uprising’s heroes. “For too long the people of New York have faced a legislature that puts political games ahead of the people’s business,” Wilt said. “We’ve seen broken budgeting, absent ethics, and a failure to deliver tax relief while protecting jobs. We’ve seen enough, and the New York Uprising pledge is a blueprint for turning our demand for change into action once we reach Albany.”
