Tyner to walk from Wall Street to Albany to promote gubernatorial bid

RHINEBECK – Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner of Rhinebeck, who is trying to get on the November ballot as a Democratic candidate for governor, plans to call attention to his campaign and his principles when he takes the 140 mile walk from Wall Street to Albany.

Tyner, who is critical of all of the mainstream candidates, Democrat and Republican, will be walking to promote, among other issues, a stock transfer tax on Wall Street to balance the budget.

“Admittedly, it is to galvanize a fire under the grassroots, progressive populous Democrats all across New York State,” he said. “I need some help.” He is hopeful that grassroots Democrats collect a handful of petition signatures each to secure the 15,000 he would need to get on the ballot.

Tyner’s walk will begin at the New York State Exchange on Saturday, June 26th and end at the Governor’s Mansion in Albany on July 5.
