“What happens in DC directly affects the women and girls who live in New York … The women and girls in New York—it’s time for us to stand up, show up, run for office, and vote.”
—Brette McSweeney, President, Eleanor’s Legacy
“I couldn’t agree more with these wise words from Eleanor’s Legacy president Brette McSweeney, and this is why I’m running for the New York State Senate, District 60. If you have a few minutes, please watch Liz Benjamin’s recent interview with Brette on Spectrum News’ Capital Tonight. They discuss the potential ramifications of the reprehensible nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, where Justice Anthony Kennedy is scheduled to retire at the end of this month, New York’s Reproductive Health Act (RHA), and how the Eleanor’s Legacy Baker Project is endorsing a group of passionate pro-choice Democratic women running for NYS Senate seats—including me.
“Protecting a woman’s right to choose and have easy access to affordable, quality healthcare is essential to the well-being to the people of our state and our nation. I am battling a wealthy GOP incumbent who could take steps to pass the RHA, but who instead chooses to keep this critical piece of legislation from going to the NYS Senate floor for a vote.
“I am proud to be a Baker Project candidate, and I will fight for our rights with every fiber of my being.
“But in order to do the most good possible, I first need to get elected! Help me take back this critical seat in District 60. Please get involved, spread the word on Facebook or ask me for a lawn sign, contribute to my campaign, and, above all, make sure that you’re registered and vote!”
