Robin Wilt to announce bid for Congress
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHAM) - Brighton Town Board member Robin Wilt will be announcing her bid for New York's 25th Congressional District this week.
Wilt is scheduled to make the announcement Monday April 16 at 5:30 p.m. at 1872 Cafe.
She will be running for late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter's seat as a Democrat.
“To continue Louise Slaughter’s progressive legacy, we need a Congresswoman who won’t sit back and wait, but who will go out and fight for progress,” said Wilt. “As a tested and unflinching advocate for the people of Monroe County, our woman-led campaign is ready to fight for the issues that matter most to our community: healthcare, economic equity, criminal justice reform and optimism and opportunity for our children.”
Neurosurgeon Dr. Jim Maxwell is running for the vacant seat as a Republican.
