I'm Robin Wilt, a native to the Rochester area who has lived in Brighton with my husband, Nick, and our three sons since 2003. Having lived in other parts of the country, we chose to reside in this region because we believe it is the best region to raise a family. My 13-year-old son is a student in public schools, while my two older sons attend college at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Bard College of Simon’s Rock.

In addition to my work as a real estate professional, I have spent my entire adult life advocating for grassroots involvement and political engagement. In my role on the Brighton Town Board, I consistently offer a diversity of perspective that aligns with our community's core values of education, equity and environmental justice. Accomplishments to date include:

  • Initiated the adoption of gender neutral language in all Town communications.
  • Established the IDEA Committee (Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Advisory), which focuses on the needs of our increasingly diverse community.
  • Re-established Brighton's Environmental and Beautification Committee to support recycling, and other new and existing work being done by community groups.
  • Coordinated feedback for the state DOT in regard to improving plans for traffic routing and bike lanes.
  • Sponsored Community Choice Aggregation, which will enable the Town to procure energy services on behalf of its residents, lowering prices and enabling 100% renewable sourcing.

Early on, I learned the value of hard work from my parents, both health care professionals who immigrated from Guyana, South America. My core values are those of inclusion, equity and social justice. I believe in transparent governance and maximizing access to and participation in the democratic process. As a first-generation American, I realize that my parents, through access to educational and economic opportunity, were able to afford their children what can only be described as the American Dream. My primary goal in running for Congress is to ensure that access to the American Dream is not foreclosed to future generations; that our nation remains a beacon of economic prosperity and opportunity for the world, and that we continue to aspire to be a country that believes that the differences that divide us are less significant than the fundamental similarities that bring us together in the spirit of cooperation.

    “Robin Wilt would be an ideal successor to Louise Slaughter in the 25th district. Robin, like Louise, is immensely hard-working, intelligent, warm-hearted, and fiercely committed to working on causes that protect the vulnerable in our society and make our community a better place to live for everyone. I've had the opportunity to see her in action and she is definitely a force for good. I believe anyone who gets to know Robin will understand how she could carry on the Louise Slaughter tradition and forge her own path in Washington.”

    “As a long time progressive activist myself, I have had the good fortune of working alongside my friend Robin Wilt as we have sought to bring issues of utmost importance to the forefront and to the attention of legislators. Robin’s knowledge of the issues at hand, her strength of character, as well as her seemingly endless energy and compassion are just what is needed in the US House of Representatives at this most trying time in our nation’s history. In this age of big money influencing politics and ultimately the decisions of far too many of our elected officials, I am proud that Robin is running a small donation, grass roots campaign free from the big money influence that has been devastating our democracy at record levels since the 2010 Citizens United decision. I will be working hard to see that Robin is on the ballot in the November election and, if necessary, the June 26th primary election. Please join me in my support for Robin as our representative in New York’s 25th Congressional District!!”
