Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn) received the following endorsements for reelection to NY-12.
New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) announced their endorsement on May 21. NYSNA President Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez, RN, said, “(Carolyn Maloney) has a long track record of fighting to strengthen our healthcare system, including co-sponsoring Single Payer Medicare for All. Like nurses, she values scientific research and uses it to guide policy decisions. We look forward to her continued advocacy for women’s rights, for workers’ rights, and for the communities of NY-12.”...
...Gloria Steinem, the iconic feminist, journalist and social political activist who is nationally recognized as a leader for womenʼs causes, on May 21 also endorsed Maloney for reelection. The endorsement takes place on the historic 100th anniversary of the Houseʼs passage of the 19th Amendment. “Of all times in history, this is not the moment to replace experience with inexperience, or to lose seniority on crucial committees,” said Steinem. “We need Carolyn Maloney in Congress now more than ever – especially in the critical position she holds as Chairwoman of the powerful House Oversight Committee – the first woman ever to sit in that chair. It’s doubly crucial to keep Carolyn Maloney in Congress now, when the Equal Rights Amendment has finally been ratified by 38 states, and only needs the removal of an unfair Congressional deadline. She has long been the advocate for the ERA, and she must be there to assure and celebrate its final passage.”
Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) on May 22 said, “Carolyn’s willingness to stand up to credit card companies was an inspiration to me. In her leadership on the Committee on Oversight and Reform, I see her willingness to fight for her constituents and working families across the country.”
