Women's Campaign Forum Endorses Robin Wilt

ROCHESTER, NY: The Women’s Campaign Forum (WCF)—a non-partisan national network founded in 1974 and committed to achieving parity for women in public office—has endorsed Robin Wilt (D-W) for New York State Senate in the 56th district.

“I am both honored and thrilled to have received the endorsement of the Women's Campaign Forum,” Wilt said.  “I remain committed to the mission of achieving parity for women in elected office, and in the Senate, I will champion pay equity legislation, so that women may finally receive equal pay for the equal work that they perform.”

“WCF looks for candidates who have demonstrated leadership experience working to improve the lives of women, and a demonstrated commitment to protect reproductive health choices for all,” explains the organization’s website. “We look for candidates who have a strong investment in their community and a record of community service.”

Wilt’s record of leadership and service as a grassroots activist and business owner earned the group’s endorsement.  She organized support for renewal of the State Child Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) legislation in 2006 and has been a strong advocate for women’s health and women’s rights in the workplace.

WCF’s goal of parity for women in public office has not yet been realized in New York.  Currently, only 10 of New York’s 62 state senators—8 Democrats and 2 Republicans—are women.  Wilt is one of ten Democratic women challenging incumbent Republican men for Senate seats this year.  She will fight in Albany for expanded economic opportunity, tax relief for working families, and strong ethics reform.
