(ROCHESTER, NY) – Trailblazers PAC, the national, nonpartisan organization supporting candidates for county or municipal level office who stand for clean government, announced its endorsement of Rachel Barnhart for Monroe County Legislature, District 21, in the general election set for November 5, 2019.

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.
“Trailblazers endorses me and I endorse Trailblazers! I love the mission of getting politics out of the back room and onto the front porch. Trailblazers is empowering citizens. My campaign is proof that small donors in large numbers have a lot of power,” said Rachel Barnhart, candidate for Monroe County Legislature, District 21.

“Rachel Barnhart has worked tirelessly to get literal ‘buy-in’ to her campaign through donations from voters in her district. We are proud to stand with Trailblazers like Rachel who go beyond campaign promises to take real action that makes local leaders accountable to voters,” said Leslie Danks Burke, President and Founder of Trailblazers PAC.

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.
