Veterans are a critical part of our Dutchess and Columbia County communities and deserve support building vibrant lives in the Hudson Valley. That’s why I’ll fight to:

  • Pass the NY Health Act. No one should suffer from lack of healthcare. We need to pass the NY Health Act to guarantee healthcare to all New Yorkers and ensure that a single-payer system is properly integrated with existing VA benefits.
  • End veteran homelessness. Veterans are more likely to become homeless. No one should be living on the streets. We need to pass the Housing Access Voucher Program to end homelessness in New York.

Compare to Didi Barrett’s record:

During her decade in office, Barrett has failed veterans by:

  • Failing to support Coverage for All legislation.
  • Accepting $4,500 from the Healthcare Association of New York State, which opposed the NY Health Act.
  • Voting for the April 2020 state budget, which cut Medicaid by $2.5 billion a year—including $400 million from hospitals—at the height of COVID-19.
