Former #NY23 Congressional Candidate Karl Warrington Endorses Tracy

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 8, 2018

Statement from Democratic Candidate Tracy Mitrano in Response to Warrington Endorsement

Yesterday, Karl Warrington announced his decision to withdraw from the NY-23rd congressional race and to endorse Tracy Mitrano. Warrington told the Ithaca Times that Tracy “is the one person who can seriously take on Tom Reed. Super, super smart and definitely has the gravitas. Hands down, best choice.”

In response, Mitrano released the following statement:

“I am grateful to receive Mr. Warrington’s endorsement. I truly admire and respect the campaign Mr. Warrington ran. He focused on bringing compassion and community values back into politics, things sorely lacking in recent political discussions and in our current congressional representation.

In his professional life and during his campaign, Mr. Warrington has gained a reputation for standing up against injustice and speaking out against policies that unfairly hurt the working and middle-class—issues that have been an important feature of my campaign as well. He has also rightly been quick to point out the many times Congressman Tom Reed has sided with the interests of his wealthy donors and politicians in Washington, rather than his constituents in NY-23.

I look forward to working together with Mr. Warrington in the coming weeks and months to fight for those in our district who have been neglected by our current representation on issues such as health care and economic opportunity.”

Tracy Mitrano and Volunteers Collect Over 5,000 Petition Signatures

After weeks of hundreds of volunteers going door to door across all 11 counties in NY-23, the campaign has officially collected and filed over 5,300 signatures- over four times the number needed to get on the ballot for the June 26th, 2018 primary.  Tracy Mitrano could not be more pleased and more excited about the results.

In response to the results, Tracy Mitrano released this statement:

“Thank you so much to our extraordinary volunteers who spent thousands of hours collecting signatures despite the, at times, terrible weather conditions! Our success in petitioning is because of this outstanding “people-powered” support from folks who have rallied to help bring opportunity back to the district. This is a major first step to our “Get Out the Vote” strategy moving into June. Onward!”

Zimet said, “The Women’s Equality Party is proud to endorse Tracy Mitrano for Congress. Women in this country still face significant discrimination, particularly in the workplace. Mitrano’s track record of community service and advocacy for marginalized communities throughout her personal and professional life, proves she is the person we need in Congress to fight for gender equality.”

WEP Regional Leader Debra Puckhaber also praised Mitrano’s ongoing work to advance the rights of women. “Tracy Mitrano is a champion and fierce advocate of Women’s Equality Party tenets, such as defending access to affordable healthcare, to protecting women’s rights in the workplace. We are confident she will bring that same spirit to Congress. She has a clear message which resonates across New York’s 23rd District, and a creative vision for our area that will translate into sustainable, concrete results.”

Tracy’s focus on issues such as creating jobs, defending access to affordable health care, developing infrastructure, and protecting the environment are all issues that are important to constituents from Ithaca to Hornell to Wellsville and Jamestown, regardless of their political affiliation. Having spent her entire live in Western and Southern Tier New York, she has a genuine love for this area that will make her an excellent steward of this District.

In response, Tracy Mitrano said the following, “I would like to thank Mayor Myrick for his endorsement. Ithaca has a special place in my heart.
