Supporters of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s independent presidential campaign will gather at a local diner on Thursday, May 2 from 4-8 p.m. to sign a petition aimed at securing his spot on the New York State ballot.

The event, part of a broader effort to present Kennedy as a centrist alternative to major party candidates, is hoping to attract politically moderate voters from Wayne and upper Cayuga counties. Attendees can sign the petition at the 104 Store 24-Hour Diner.

Kennedy’s campaign, which touts a common-sense, centrist platform, claims higher favorability ratings than those of Donald Trump or Joe Biden. The campaign aims to appeal to voters disillusioned with traditional party choices by advocating for healthy competition and freedom of choice in the electoral process.

Organizers hope the event can facilitate ballot access but also support a local business, as attendees are encouraged to purchase food and drinks.
