The Upstate Jobs Party has been formed to advocate on issues and approaches we believe help or hinder job creation in Upstate NY.
Through our website, social media presence, press coverage, gathering and other activities, we promote awareness of related issues to the general public in Upstate NY.
We screen and endorse candidates who embrace UJP principles and platform, and may initiate our own independent communications reflecting our support of endorsed candidates. We do not coordinate such communications with any candidate, nor do we get involved in any candidate’s campaign operations, or the candidate’s own advertising or messaging.
Our goals include attracting a gubernatorial candidate to run on the UJP line in the 2018 statement election. Success in this effort would include securing 50,000 votes statewide for the candidate on the UJP line, thereby helping qualify UJP as a constituted political party in NY State.
As a constituted political party, UJP would immediately be more attractive for all candidates to consider listing on the UJP line, which in turn helps us build broader support for these important principles.
