Eleanor’s Legacy Endorses Record-Breaking Number of Women Candidates for Local Office
NEW YORK, NY – Eleanor’s Legacy today announces its endorsement of Susan Cockburn for Montgomery Town Board. The organization, which recruits, trains, and funds pro-choice Democratic women candidates for state and local office in New York State, has endorsed over 180 candidates for local office in 29 counties across the state.
“The wave of New York women stepping up to run and lead keeps on rolling,” said Brette McSweeney, president of Eleanor’s Legacy. “Local office is the building block of our democracy. At a time when voters are looking for leaders with integrity and commitment to their communities, who we elect to lead our villages, towns, cities, and counties matters more than ever. As Mrs. Roosevelt said, “It’s up to the women.”
