DFA cheers as India Walton becomes presumptive next mayor of Buffalo, NY
DEMOCRACY FOR AMERICA CPO CHRIS SCOTT ON
INDIA WALTON’S PRIMARY ELECTION VICTORY FOR BUFFALO MAYOR
“India Walton has just ousted a four term incumbent in a historic upset victory, bringing her one step closer to becoming the first ever woman to become mayor of Buffalo, New York. In one of the most significant progressive victories of the 2021 cycle, she triumphed over moneyed special interests and an entrenched political establishment by running a people-powered campaign rooted in love and community.”
“India’s belief that housing, healthcare, healthy food and a quality education are basic human rights will make her a fierce champion for working families, and a force to be reckoned with within the mayor’s office. We look forward to helping her deliver victory in November.”
DFA has 117,086 members in the state of New York and more than one million members nationwide.
