(RED HOOK, NY) – Trailblazers PAC, the national, nonpartisan organization supporting candidates for local-level office who stand for clean government, announced its endorsement of Kristofer Munn for Dutchess County Legislature District 20 in the general election set for November 5, 2019. This is the second time Munn has been endorsed by Trailblazers PAC.
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, Trailblazers 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.
“Since I took office in January 2018, our legislature has put forward (and sometimes passed) pro-transparency resolutions, laws banning pay-to-play, and improved ethics and disclosure laws,” said Kristofer Munn, candidate for Dutchess County Legislature District 20. “I’m honored to be endorsed again by Trailblazers for my 2019 re-election campaign.”
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.
“Since we first endorsed Kris in 2017, he’s proven a great example of how our Trailblazers don’t just make campaign promises. They take real action for clean government while they’re running, and then continue to put voters first once they’re in office,” said Leslie Danks Burke, founder and president of Trailblazers PAC. “Our endorsement doesn’t just carry over. Kris had to work hard again this year to follow higher ethical standards than law requires, and we’re proud to stand with him in his re-election campaign.”
Now in its third year, Trailblazers PAC has invested in successful candidates across the political spectrum in one community after another. The organization also offers popular “Front Porch Politics” workshops that have educated over one thousand candidates, supporters, and interested citizens across the country from Binghamton, NY to Savannah, GA.
