On behalf of our membership, the Up2Us Board of Directors is proud to announce our endorsement of Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins.
Senator Stewart-Cousins was elected by her Democratic colleagues to serve as the leader of the Senate Democratic Conference -the first woman in the history of New York to hold a legislative leadership position.
We know that Senator Stewart-Cousins is a true advocate for the values on which Up2Us was founded. She has demonstrated her commitment to public education with increases of State funding. She has supported workers by fighting for raising the minimum wage, cutting middle class income taxes, ensuring access to quality affordable health care and creating thousands of jobs in Westchester through the Regional Economic Development Councils. She strongly protects women’s health care and reproductive rights, supports safer communities with the toughest gun control laws in the nation and combatting climate change through support of the state’s Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.
Up2Us was honored to host Senator Stewart-Cousins as a featured speaker at the second meeting of our organization. She also campaigns tirelessly for Up2Us endorsed candidates including George Latimer and Shelley Mayer.
She has done all this - and more - which is why Up2Us is proud to endorse Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins and we encourage every Democrat in the 35th District to vote for her on Thursday, September 13.
