(ALBANY, NY) – Sam Fein has become the first candidate ever in the New York Capital region to earn the endorsement of Trailblazers PAC, the national, nonpartisan organization supporting candidates for county or municipal level office who stand for clean government. Fein is running in the November 5 general election to be re-elected as Albany County Legislator, District 6.

With a mission of “Front Porch Politics,” Trailblazers PAC changes the game by challenging leaders of any party to act better than the current broken money-in-politics system. 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 outside interests, and stand up for honest government through Election Day and beyond.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Trailblazers PAC, an organization that supports candidates who are accountable to their constituents and believe in clean government. With so many people losing trust in our political system, it’s especially important that as candidates we demonstrate a commitment to be accountable to our constituents,” said Sam Fein, candidate for Albany County Legislature, District 6.

“Sam’s people-powered campaign sends a message that voters should be the loudest voices in the room,” said Leslie Danks Burke, founder and president of Trailblazers PAC, “We endorsed Sam because he’s standing up for honest government by disclosing where his money comes from–– and it’s evident that it’s from the voters, not just outside interests.”

Now in its third year, Trailblazers PAC has mentored municipal-level candidates in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia. The organization has endorsed and donated to successful candidates of different political parties in one community after another. Trailblazers PAC also offers popular “Front Porch Politics” workshops that have educated thousands of candidates, supporters, and interested citizens on local-level political involvement in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and elsewhere.
