STATEMENT FROM THE INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC CONFERENCE
We welcome Senator Jesse Hamilton aboard the Independent Democratic Conference as our seventh member and look forward to achieving even more results for the people of New York with his support. Six years ago, our conference grew out of a mission to make positive change in this state and today its continued growth is a validation of its success. The IDC propelled policies like paid family leave, the $15 minimum wage and the toughest gun laws in the nation. We are proud to deliver for the people of New York and know that Senator Hamilton will help us continue that vision.
STATEMENT FROM SENATOR JESSE HAMILTON
The Independent Democratic Conference delivers for New Yorkers: the best paid family leave program in the nation, a $15 minimum wage, and the toughest gun laws in the country. They get results. That’s why I’ve decided to join my fellow Democrats and become the newest member of the IDC. This conference will continue to innovate, delivering to the people who matter most, my community and our fellow New Yorkers. Standing with them, I will be a prominent voice on affordable housing, quality education, safe streets and criminal justice reform. I look forward to serving with the Independent Democrats and achieving more victories for all New Yorkers.
