The People for Dana Balter

Why Steve supports Dana Balter…

I’m voting for Dana Balter because I believe we need a true progressive to represent our district. She is someone with compassion for those in need, and will work for helping our communities. I also believe that she has the very best chance to defeat Rep. Katko this fall.

Why Elaine supports Dana…

I trust Dana Balter to be a representative that CNY and this country needs. I have volunteered for the last year and a half along side Dana. Her leadership, understanding and compassion are the very qualities missing from our current representatives.

When my family had an emergency, Dana dropped everything to make sure we were okay. She understands what is important in life and supports her community.

I will be voting for Dana Balter on June 26th for the democratic primary because she will ensure the voices of District 24 are heard and represented in congress. Plus I can’t wait to see Dana own Katko in a debate.

Why Mark supports Dana Balter…

Here are the reasons which made me an early supporter of Dana Balter for Congress in New York’s 24th District:

-She’s values-driven, and she was acting on her progressive and loving values long before she ever thought of running.
-She’s a kind and balanced person. She is not seeking this position to accumulate power, advance herself, or prop up a weak and troubled ego. She does not need this job; she wants it as a vehicle for resisting evils rampant in our current politics, such as greed, and racism and she is only motivated by the prospect of service to the people of her district.
-She understands the intricacies of social policy, because, as a scholar and a college professor, she studies and teaches them.
-She’s opposed by the Democratic machine, God bless her.
-And she is electable!

Why Jonathan supports Dana Balter…

I first came across Dana at meetings and protests following the 2016 election. I was struck by her knowledge of the issues, her eloquence, her obvious passion for justice, and her commitment to do the hard work to advance the work of justice for the people of this community.

I support her wholeheartedly on universal healthcare. It is the obligation of a just, prosperous and decent society to ensure that the least of these should not be denied quality health care because they can’t pay for it.

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 David supports Dana Balter…

I support Dana because she will work hard to stop Trump from dividing this country and destroying our democracy. She is not taking corporate money, so we can rely on her to represent us here in Central New York, which our current representative is not doing. She’s our best hope for getting back to the pursuit of equality and for reviving the American Dream for all.

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.
