Statement from Rob Astorino on Establishment of the Reform Party

“Today is a good day for reformers in New York. The establishment of the Reform Party will be another force in the fight to enact desperately needed changes in New York, chief among them repealing Common Core and enacting term limits for legislators. I’m proud to have advanced these causes as the Republican and Conservative nominee for governor last year, but sadly, our state continues to falter. This ballot line was created through the hard work of New Yorkers actively engaged in seeking change, and any candidate who seeks its endorsement must commit to its principles. I look forward to continuing the fight for these reforms and strengthening our cause through this additional vehicle for change.”

Rob Astorino is the Westchester County executive and was the 2014 GOP gubernatorial nominee.
