Dear Senator Klein,

With the election of Brian Benjamin, the New York State Senate will again have 32 registered
Democrats in the chamber, providing Democrats with a numerical majority. As Donald Trump
continues to propose devastating cuts to critical programs. it is more important than ever for
progressive New Yorkers to unite. That is why we are asking you to join the now-23 members of
the Democratic Conlrence by pledging to only enter a coalition to lead the Senate with fellow
Democrats and abandoning your coalition with Republicans.

We must respect the will of voters and provide our state with the functional Senate Democratic
Majority they elected time and time again. The Senate Democratic Conference takes note of your
statement that whatever differences we may have, the members of our two conference share
certain core beliefs rooted in fairness, tolerance and inclusionbeliefs that are currently tinder
attack from the Trump administration. This is why we trust you will put personality differences
aside and work together for a united Democratic leadership in the Senate.

We need you to join with [he Senate Democratic Conference to ensure that our conferences
control the New York State Senate. Only by signing this pledge will we succeed in
accomplishing many of your stated goals.

With 32 Democrats again in the Senate Chamber, we have the opportunity to pass progressive
legislation to resist Donald Trump and serve as a beacon to a weary nation. The Senate
Democratic Conference and the Independent Democratic Conference must not let this
opportunity pass us by, and that is why we ask that you pledge by June 16th to no longer be in a
coalition with Republicans and only enter a coalition with fellow Democrats to lead the Senate.

Senator Jeff Klein
