Tim Kennedy’s campaign for New York state Senate is heating up with polls now showing Tim in a statistical dead heat with Republican nominee and marriage foe Jack Quinn III. HRC is making sure our members know about this key race. I’ve been working here on the ground helping to turn out our members for volunteer canvasses and phone banks here in western New York.

HRC member and volunteer all-star, Damian Tremblay, hits the phones at least 4 times a week talking to members and voters in the Buffalo area about Tim and the issues that are important to Western New Yorkers. If elected, Kennedy pledges to represent the best interests of all New York families and will represent one of the 6 votes necessary to finally pass marriage equality in the state of New York.

Tim is challenging Incumbent Assemblyman Jack Quinn III who is actively campaigning against Tim because of his stance on marriage equality. But Tim isn’t backing down.

After a long night of voter contact, Damian took me and two other HRC volunteers to the Buffalo favorite recently visited by Barack Obama himself — Duff’s Famous Wings. With the help of volunteers like Damian and others, we can achieve full marriage rights and full stomachs!

Are you in the Buffalo area? Are you interested in volunteering for a fantastic, pro-equality candidate? Call Regional Field Organizer David Contreras Turley at 202 330 3790 for more information.
