Kendra Evans Chooses to Exceed Legal Standards in Pittsford Town Supervisor Race
(Pittsford, NY) – One of the candidates for Pittsford (NY) Town Supervisor is choosing to meet ethical standards that are higher than requirements the law sets.
Kendra Evans, running for Pittsford Town Supervisor, is actively disclosing all of her campaign finances which goes beyond what New York State election law requires. Evans also achieved the goal of raising donations from a significantly higher proportion of homes in her district than politicians usually do.
Meeting this higher standard has earned Evans the endorsement of Trailblazers PAC, the national, nonpartisan organization supporting candidates for county or municipal level office who take proven action for honest government.
“Relying on grassroots funding, my campaign is fueled by the people of Pittsford. I’m committed to bringing about a new chapter in local government – one that is transparent, responsive and accountable to residents. I’m honored to receive the Trailblazers endorsement and be part of a like-minded community who value process and ethical leadership,” said Kendra Evans, candidate for Pittsford (NY) Town Supervisor in the November 2, 2021 election.
Trailblazers PAC focuses exclusively on candidates running for office at the local (not state or federal) level, works with candidates of any political party, and will endorse on both sides of a given race if each candidate achieves the criteria. Candidates must also stand for honest government which upholds the U.S. Constitution and respects the dignity of all people.
“It’s very rare that candidates choose to do more than election law requires,” said Leslie Danks Burke, Trailblazers PAC Executive Board President and the organization’s mentor to Evans. “By setting and achieving this goal, Kendra has brought more voters into contact with their local government that is supposed to be of, by, and for the people. We at Trailblazers PAC applaud Kendra for her commitment to transparency and her desire to make voters the loudest voices in the room.”
Unlike most political organizations, Trailblazers PAC places candidates who apply into an intensive mentorship and training program. With approximately 250 candidates across the country in mentorship over the years, about a quarter have achieved endorsement, earning the title, “Trailblazer.” Even mentored candidates who do not get all the way to endorsement emerge as leaders committed to honest government, with strength to run winning campaigns.
Now in its fifth year, Trailblazers PAC has reached millions of voters by mentoring county and municipal-level candidates in eighteen states across the country. The organization only endorses and donates to candidates running in contested elections, and since 2017, over 65% of these candidates have won their elections.
