COLLEGE DEMOCRATS OF NEW YORK ENDORSE CONRAD TAYLOR FOR BINGHAMTON CITY COUNCIL
Albany, N.Y.—Today the College Democrats of New York endorsed Conrad Taylor City Council in Binghamton’s 4th district. A student at Binghamton University and just 18 years old, Taylor represents a new generation of young Democrats with a passion for public service and a bright vision for the future.
“Conrad is a new and energetic voice that will fight for the people of Binghamton,” said Jamie Zieno, President of the College Democrats of New York. “He has already established a strong record for working tirelessly to advance Democratic causes in Binghamton, and we are confident he will give the people of 4th district the kind of representation they deserve.”
Taylor got his first taste of politics in 2008 when he campaigned for President Obama with his father in rural Pennsylvania. Now pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, Taylor wasted no time in getting involved in local politics, interning for state senate candidate Anndrea Starzak and joining the Binghamton College Democrats. His experiences connecting with the citizens of Binghamton convinced him that they were not satisfied with their representation, and wanted more from their elected officials.
“As a proud College Dem at Binghamton University, it is humbling to know I have the support of young leaders from across New York State,” said Conrad Taylor in a press statement. “I'm excited to bring new ideas and a new voice to Binghamton, and I know that with CDNY’s help, I can further engage young people across the Southern Tier."
Taylor is committed to expanding opportunity for every person in Binghamton whether it be in pursuing higher education, growing a small business, keeping streets safe, or transforming blighted housing into greener community spaces. With a strong vision for Binghamton, the College Democrats of New York community will do whatever it can to ensure Conrad Taylor is elected to City Council.
As an affiliate of College Democrats of America, the College Democrats of New York work to empower young progressives and elect Democrats to local, statewide and national office.
