(POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.) – Trailblazers PAC, the nonpartisan organization supporting local-level candidates across New York State who stand for clean government, announced its endorsement of Coleen Snow for Pawling Town Board.
With a mission of “Front Porch Politics,” Trailblazers PAC aims to move politics out of the back room so voters can take back local government from big money. Trailblazers PAC invests in candidates of any political party (even if they are running against each other) who make themselves accountable to their own voters by choosing to do better than the law requires and disclosing where all of their campaign money comes from.
Trailblazers PAC has a track record of successfully investing in candidates since March 2017, and puts on popular “Front Porch Politics” workshops across New York and Pennsylvania. The group has held 18 workshops for candidates, supporters, and interested citizens in far-flung locations over the past two years.
“I’m running for three reasons: to bring transparency to town government, to foster communication among the board and the community, and to increase collaboration among the stakeholders of Pawling,” said Snow. “Right in line with Trailblazers’ message of clean government, I want to use my experience as School Board President to make the Town of Pawling more responsive to its people.”
“Coleen intends to make herself and her Town accountable to voters, and Trailblazers PAC is proud to stand with Coleen as she steps up for clean government in her Pawling community,” said Leslie Danks Burke, founder and president of Trailblazers PAC.
Trailblazers PAC endorses candidates at the county or municipal level who raise the bar by disclosing every penny in and out of their campaign, make themselves accountable to their voters by raising funds from households inside their district instead of just from special interests, and commit to acting for clean government through Election Day and beyond.
