Trailblazers PAC Endorses Dan Keating for Pittsford Village Trustee (again!)


(ROCHESTER, NY) – Trailblazers PAC, the nonpartisan organization that supports candidates of any political party for local-level office anywhere in the country,  who commit to open and responsive government, announced its endorsement of Dan Keating for Pittsford Village Trustee in Monroe County, NY in the general election set for March 19th.

With a mission of “Front Porch Politics,” Trailblazers PAC revolutionizes politics by challenging leaders of any party to act better than broken campaign finance laws require. Across the country, Trailblazer candidates are building communities that demand and expect honest government. These Trailblazers give voters the power to take back their rightful role in the democratic republic by moving politics out of the back room, onto the front porch.

“I am honored to receive Trailblazers PAC’s endorsement again this year. Their leadership and focus on ‘Front Porch Politics’ is making a huge difference across New York,” said Keating. “I look forward to continuing to serve Village residents in my role as Trustee on the Pittsford Village Board. I have made transparent meetings and open communication the foundation of my work. It starts there.”

Keating is the first candidate to earn Trailblazers PAC’s endorsement twice. He was also endorsed when he ran and won the Trustee seat in March, 2018. To earn Trailblazers PAC’s endorsement, candidates for county or municipal level office must disclose every penny in and out of their campaign, make themselves accountable to their own voters by raising funds from households within their district instead of just from special interests, and stand up for honest government through Election Day and beyond.

“We were proud to stand with Dan as a Trailblazer when he first ran, and he’s now served in office for a year the same way he ran that campaign, by putting voters first,” said Leslie Danks Burke, founder and president of Trailblazers PAC. “We’ve watched Dan open up his Village meetings to more residents, and that’s what we expect of Trailblazers: They walk the talk on their campaign pledge of transparency. We are proud to endorse Dan as an incumbent Trustee running for reelection this year.”

Trailblazers PAC has successfully invested in winning candidates since its founding in January 2017. The organization also offers popular “Front Porch Politics” workshops that have educated over one thousand candidates, supporters, and interested citizens in far-flung locations over the past two years.
