ALBANY, NY — Today, the Millennial Action Project launched the New York Future Caucus – a bipartisan caucus within the state legislature to encourage young legislators to work across the aisle on issues impacting young New York residents. Assemblymember Alex Bores (D) and Assemblyman Ed Ra (R) will lead the caucus in the New York State Assembly.
The caucus joins the Millennial Action Project’s national movement of young elected officials collaborating to forge common ground. The newly launched New York Future Caucus is the 34th state to officially join the Millennial Action Project’s State Future Caucus network. As part of this large network of Future Caucuses across the country, these young New Yorker leaders will help build efforts that bring civility to the political discourse and prove that good governance begins with meaningful collaboration.
“I am proud to serve as Democratic co-chair of the New York Future Caucus, and look forward to working with Assemblyman Ra and colleagues on both sides of the aisle to secure our state’s future,” said Assemblymember Alex Bores. “While there are many issues on which we may disagree, I look forward to working together on common-sense legislation to move New York forward.”
“New Yorkers need forward thinking legislators who will work across the aisle and focus on results that will benefit our state for generations,” said Assemblyman Ed Ra. “I’m thrilled to chair this caucus alongside my colleagues in the General Assembly. This Future Caucus is a crucial step towards setting partisan politics aside to tackle the tough issues head on, and I’m eager to continue this work.”
These are the leaders who are strengthening our political system and directly addressing issues most important to young people in our country, in 2023 and beyond. In an era of hyperpartisanship, the New York Future Caucus will work together to find common-sense policy solutions which are popular, effective, and work for the people of New York.
