Raise Your Voice

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.

Let’s Stand Together

Stand Together With Dana

Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate

Why I am running for Congress…

The people I love, the country I love, the values I love are all being threatened and I cannot stand idly by.

I’m standing up to fight for the things our community needs most: adequate, affordable healthcare for every person; an equitable, high-quality education for every child; policies that promote economic justice and meaningful employment; an insistence on racial justice and demand for equal treatment under the law for all people; protection of our natural resources and responsible stewardship of the Earth; a restoration of respect for our democratic institutions and American values. If you entrust me with the task of promoting the public good on Capitol Hill, my job will be to amplify the voices of our community and ensure that no one is left behind.

Stay connected with Dana!

Why Kathleen supports Dana Balter...

I support Dana because she has guts, brains and what is so sadly missing in our world today, empathy. She can feel our pain. She knows that the greatest country in the world can afford to care for all it's people. Education and health care for all and prioritized clean energy should be givens. All institutionalized "isms" must end. Not only will it take a woman to feel these needs by instinct, it will take this woman to bring them about.

Why Maurice supports Dana Balter...

I am supporting Dana Balter to Represent 24th District because she is the candidate who knows how to address my issues. She's as good of a listener as she is a speaker and she listens to the needs in our community. It is important that we have a candidate who will not only hold town halls, but one who will use those town halls to listen to the constituents and use that information to better address the needs of the community. She is the candidate who will do that, and that is why I am supporting Dana Balter for Congress!

Why Diane supports Dana Balter...

Since last summer, I have been watching and listening to Dana. She is articulate, intelligent and knowledgeable about the crucial issues of our time. Her positions are thoughtful and address the concerns of ALL constituents of the 24th district. She will be a very effective leader and make us all proud.

Why Jennie supports Dana Balter...

Had the pleasure of meeting Dana Balter on the eve of the Women’s March in NYC. Smart, compassionate & eager to build on our collective shared values to bring about real progress in government. At a time when we suffer through partisan politics, divisive leadership and a bully in our big house, she is a breath of fresh air. Good luck Dana Balter!

Why Roberta supports Dana Balter...

I support Dana because she is passionate for the people of the 24th district. She is always there to answer questions, no matter how many times she hears them. She is articulate and intelligent in her views and understands the issues with great ideas to move forward. She is real and approachable, unlike others who hide from constituents. Her approach is simple: Show up (put yourself out there no matter what is asked) ; Speak up (say what you believe and follow through on it); and Shut up (listen to the voices of the people). I really like this philosophy. That is why I will vote for Dana.

Why Ric supports Dana Balter...

Dana's commitment to progressive ideas and policies are strongly needed in these times when the GOP is working hard to destroy our nation while enriching only those at the top. We don't need someone who will cave to Trump and his destruction of everything which is good about our country. A progressive agenda will truly help everyone, not just the 1%, will save us all money in the long run and we'll be a better, stronger country for it.

Why Colette supports Dana Balter...

I support Dana because I believe that she will bring back some decency and fairness into our government. We need to get rid of NRA supported congressmen & women and reclaim our government of the people NOT the lobbyist or the wealthy. We need people in congress who care more about helping the majority of the people they serve and not the few who are wealthy enough to support their campaigns.
