(Horseheads) – Trailblazers PAC, the nonpartisan organization working with municipal and county-level candidates across the state, today announced that it endorses Julie Domaratz for Mayor of the Village of Fairport in the Independence Party Primary set for Thursday, September 13, 2018.

The nonpartisan, multi-state Trailblazers PAC aims to move politics out of the back room, onto the front porch. Trailblazers PAC endorses candidates of any political party (even if they are running against each other) if they take action for clean government by choosing to do better than campaign finance law requires.   

“I want the people of Fairport to know, I want to hear from them. I am honored to be endorsed by Trailblazers PAC and to follow their model. Voters and residents deserve to know who funds a candidate and what that candidate stands for.” said Domaratz.

To earn Trailblazers PAC’s endorsement, candidates must be: running at the County level or lower; 100% transparent in disclosing their campaign finances (far beyond law requirements); funded in part by contributions from actual voters in the district or municipality they want to represent (rather than solely by outside or special interests); and committed to continued transparency in office once elected.

In addition to supporting individual candidates, Trailblazers PAC puts on popular “Front Porch Politics” workshops across New York and Pennsylvania. Over 800 candidates, supporters, and interested citizens have joined eighteen workshops since the organization launched in early 2017.

“Julie Domaratz attended our April 2017 workshop in Perinton, NY, and has made honest government a cornerstone of her campaign. The building blocks for clean, honest government are grounded at the local level, and Trailblazers PAC is proud to stand with Julie,” said Leslie Danks Burke, founder and president of Trailblazers PAC.
