Martin Babinec calls for volunteers to join the Upstate Jobs Party petition drive
Utica, New York – Independent candidate for Congress, successful businessman, serial entrepreneur, startup investor and jobs advocate Martin Babinec today announced the launch of the petition drive to gather signatures to qualify the Upstate Jobs Party as an independent party line for the November ballot.
“If you care about jobs for our families, for our children, for our future we are asking you to come forward, volunteer and join our cause,” said Babinec.
He added, “The Upstate Jobs Party is about more than just my candidacy, it’s about creating a sustainable political alternative to a two party system dominated by crony capitalism and special interests that has over and over again failed to deliver jobs for our region. If we are successful in bringing volunteers and attention to this line I plan to support its expansion going forward.”
The petition process, which begins today and ends August 2, requires at least 3,500 signatures from registered voters, of any party or no party, throughout the district who have not signed another congressional petition this election cycle. There are approximately 435,500 registered voters in the 22nd Congressional District.
