Brittany grew up in a working-class household living paycheck to paycheck, even as her father worked 80 hours a week and her mother worked full time. Her experience growing up helped Brittany develop a clear understanding of the challenges working families face all across her state. At 23 years old, Brittany started the nonprofit organization Upstate Cakes for Kids delivering birthday cakes to children living in poverty. At her job, Brittany worked hard to make her way up from a bagger at her local grocery store to one of the youngest Assistant Store Managers at 24 years old, usually a position given to those with 4 year college degrees. Now at 28, she is leading 2 store remodel projects while also running for office.
Passionate about leadership and public service, Brittany is ready to accept the challenge and responsibility of elected office. She has a vision of a better life for working people and is ready to challenge the status quo on issues of money in politics, climate change, healthcare, and education. Brittany is ready to bring a new generation of leadership to the Assembly and will help lead her state in rebuilding our economy post-COVID-19, one that is built on a foundation of economic, social, and environmental justice.
To date, Brittany has been endorsed by her local Democratic Party Committees, the Working Families Party, Eleanor’s Legacy, and Run for Something.
