Endorsements 2021

Ulster People for Justice & Democracy is a volunteer group of Ulster County residents fighting for a government that represents the people, an economy that works for all of us instead of just a few, and a society where all people are treated fairly and live with dignity and freedom.

What is the significance of an Ulster People endorsement?

An Ulster People endorsement means we believe a candidate embodies our values, and will work to advance our platform when in office. We arrive at our decisions after an extensive vetting process and democratic deliberation.

About Our Endorsement Process

Anyone who wished to seek the group’s endorsement, regardless of party, was asked to complete a questionnaire. Our local and regional endorsements are entirely decided by our all-volunteer voting members. The process begins with an extensive candidate questionnaire. (Candidates who have applied in the past, please use the shortened form.)

This is followed by an interview with our endorsement committee. Candidates recommended by our endorsement committee will have an opportunity to (virtually) address our members. The final decision is made by our full voting membership. A candidate must receive the support of at least two thirds of our full voting membership to receive an endorsement.
