Westchester NOW Endorses Alessandra Biaggi for New York State Senate
The Westchester chapter of the National Organization for Women today announced it is endorsing Alessandra Biaggi in the Democratic Party primary in New York State Senate District 34. The election is Thursday, September 13.
“Alessandra Biaggi has the enthusiasm, drive and commitment to be an effective legislator for the people in her district,” commented Elizabeth Galani Zimmerman, Co-President of the chapter. “At a time when federal policies can no longer be counted on to help women and their families, we need progressive voices to step up to the plate and work to ensure that our state does so. Legislation that has languished for years, such as the Reproductive Health Act, the DREAM Act, and reforms of the criminal justice system are long past due. It is time to elect candidates who understand that their allegiance is to their constituents! In the New York Senate District 34, Alessandra Biaggi is that candidate. We urge voters to use their voice on Thursday, September 13, to help bring new representation to Albany.”
“Thank you so much Westchester NOW. It means a great deal to have the support of women’s organizations that have been leading the fight for equal rights and choice for so long,” Biaggi said. “I will be a true partner in Albany fighting until we pass all the progressive legislation that has been languishing for the past seven years.”
