County Legislator

Up2Us Endorses Ruth Walter for County Legislature

On behalf of our membership, the Up2Us Board of Directors is proud to announce our endorsement of Ruth Walter for the County Legislature representing District 15 in Westchester County, New York in the 2019 election. 

Ruth grew up in Dobbs Ferry and attended public schools before graduating from Princeton University.  She has worked in the retail and legal sectors as a network administrator. For the past 14 years she has lived in Bronxville raising her children and operating a small business.  She is the former court clerk and current President of the library.

Ruth decided to run because several years ago she began to look at this office and found that her representative did not reflect her values. As she spoke to neighbors, it became clear that they felt similarly. However, as it seemed as though the district was drawn to favor Republicans, Democrats gave up trying for this seat. She ran in 2017 and earned 47% of the vote. She is confident that this year she can make it to 51%. 

Ruth’s work in the community and her position on the issues is completely in line with our values of service, civil rights, equality, protecting our rights and resources and common sense gun laws. 

We are thrilled to put our full support behind Ruth Walter for the Westchester County Legislature, District 15. We encourage our members to visit
