Help Elect Dana Balter!
By Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Deb, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Kimberly, Bryan, and Shayna—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) endorsed Dana Balter in New York’s 24th district because she is committed to serving the people, not just the powerful special interests. This is personal to me. I grew up in Central New York, and my parents vote in this district. We’ve had a long history of voting for the person, not the party in the Central New York area. But after the naked power grabs from gutting basic services and environmental protection to ploughing through objections to the Kavanaugh nomination to seat a perjuring assaulter and extremist on the Supreme Court, we know the GOP is out of control.
Upstate New Yorkers know that extreme rightwing partisanship plagues Washington D.C. and we must send thoughtful, sensible people to Congress to hold back the right wing onslaught. The incumbent Trumpublican John Katko is running scared. His television ads pretend that he’s non-partisan. He’s running away from Trump now, but every time Trump needs his vote he’ll be there casting it with the rest of the extremists. We need to send him packing. Please contribute whatever you can afford to help elect Dana!
From Dana’s website:
It’s time to honor American values and restore respect for our democratic institutions. We will bring government back to the people and ensure that no one is left behind. One of the reasons it’s so wonderful to be a central New Yorker is because of our proud history of working for justice in this region. We were at the forefront of the movement for abolition. We were at the forefront of the movement for women’s right to vote. We were at the forefront of the movement for environmental justice.
Let’s honor and remember those foundational fights for justice by coming together in our modern day movement for justice: to ensure every person has access to healthcare; every child has access to quality education; every community enjoys clean air, water, and food; everyone is treated equally under the law; and everyone has the dignity of work with which they can support themselves and their families. This is who we are, Central New York.
Election Day is just a few weeks away. Please pitch in now to help send Dana to Congress!With your help, we can elect strong progressive candidates! Your monthly donation of $50, $20, $10, or $5 will provide us with the resources we need to make a true blue wave sweep through Congress. On November 6, by working together, we can elect a powerful progressive Democratic House and a strong Democratic Senate to reverse and the Trumpublicans’ horrible policies and start to restore basic decency and mutual respect.
