UCC Endorsement


ARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Ben Potiker, President of the Upstate Conservative Coalition of Saratoga Springs, announces the endorsement, by his organization, of Republican candidate Bob Dieterich for U.S. Congress in the NY 20th Congressional District.  Mr. Dieterich will face Democrat incumbent Paul Tonko  in the upcoming November 2012 election for the recently redrawn 20th district that will now encompass Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs and half of Montgomery counties, a sliver of eastern Rensselaer County, including the city of Troy, as well as the Saratoga County towns of Stillwater, Halfmoon, Clifton Park, Malta, Ballston and Charlton.  .

“Mr. Dieterich has put together an impressive resume especially in the private financial sector including being named CFO of the Year in the under $20 million business category by the Capital District Business review in 2011,” Ben Potiker said. “His leadership and private sector experience is just what we need in Washington to get our country back on a proper financial footing.”

The Upstate Conservative Coalition was founded in January 2009 as a non-partisan grass roots organization whose mission is to promote the conservative principles set forth in the Constitution by the founding fathers.  The membership embraces the ideals of smaller government, lower taxes, personal responsibility, and the protection of individual rights and freedoms. The group engages in protest/support rallies, letter writing and phone call campaigns, and awards endorsements to local politicians through a formal vetting process.
