SAM Party Of New York Endorses Five Candidates For Office In Monroe County

SAM Party Endorsed Candidates Are Looking To Break Through Divisiveness And Get Results For Erie County Residents

October 4, 2019 — SAM Party of New York Chairman Michael Volpe today announced the nominations of five candidates for office in Monroe County. These candidates are part of a wave of residents who are looking for a way to break through partisan politics and end the stranglehold of the two-party system. The SAM Party of New York was founded to support candidates who are involved in their local communities and getting things done.

“Our candidates have a record of accomplishment in their communities and believe in the principle of working with others regardless of political affiliation in order to get results for residents,” said SAM Party of New York Chair Michael Volpe. “Some are long-time officeholders, some are incumbents seeking re-election, and some are first time candidates. All are highly qualified for the offices they seek. We are proud to endorse these candidates and encourage residents to vote for them on the SAM Party line on November 5th.”

“The SAM Party gives Monroe County’s voters more choice and a greater opportunity to exercise their right to vote this November,” said Monroe County Legislature candidate Rachel Barnhart. “Government works best when we put aside partisan rhetoric to focus on the real issues that impact our families, friends, and neighbors, and work together to build solutions. I am grateful for the SAM Party’s continued support for myself, and for Monroe County’s future.”

The SAM Party interviewed more than 200 candidates across New York State interested in running on the SAM Party line and promoting SAM’s principles of good government, transparency, and engaging residents to build solutions that work.

The following candidates were nominated by the SAM Party of New York:

Rachel Barnhart                              County Legislature
