UTICA, N.Y. – Martin Babinec announced the creation of a new independent party line – Upstate Jobs – in his 22nd District Congressional run.

“The Upstate Jobs Party will breathe new life into the American Dream for so many New Yorkers who have been betrayed by the empty promises of politicians on both sides of the aisle who say they will create jobs – but never do,” said Babinec.

He added, “We need to stop repeating the mistakes of the past: end crony capitalism; corporate giveaways and so-called billion dollar top down economic development slush funds and replace it with a sustainable economy powered by growth in innovation industries attractive to our region’s best talent.”

The petition process, which begins on June 21st, requires at least 3,500 signatures registered voters, of any party or blanks, throughout the district who have not signed another congressional petition this election cycle. There are approximately registered 435,500 voters in the 22nd Congressional District.

Concluded Babinec, “For too many in Washington and Albany the economy of Binghamton and the Southern Tier is at best a political football and at worst an uncomfortable after thought and that is why we chose Binghamton as the place to launch this effort. I know we have the talent and the resources to thrive, we need a movement to marshall that energy into political action.”
