In our town, there are no two individuals who've stood up more for not just our neighbors but for the nation and the world than President and Secretary Clinton.
I was a volunteer in the 2016 Clinton campaign, spending the closing week of the campaign and election day by choice in North Carolina. That state was ground zero in the battle for equality, and it was where Secretary Clinton held her last rally the night before the balloting began.
Her message after the election was one I heard loud and clear. She said, get involved, organize, and run for office. As did the people of Up2Us, Indivisible, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, the Social Justice Political Action Committee and so many more.
Kirsten Gillibrand shows brilliance and flexibility in dealing with tough issues. When she was challenged on her position on a bill on which she seemed to be on the wrong side she didn't try to duck or hide. She said, in simple language, that if she'd gotten it wrong she'd change her position. And she was glad that people had brought the problem to her attention. What a contrast with those who flip flop and claim their 180 degree reversal had been their position all along!

In our very first conversation, Sean Patrick Maloney and his staff helped us to come up with better funding sources for our infrastructure projects. Working together, we can save you tax dollars, reducing expensive bond issues and end what I call the Greenstein tax, that big extra chunk on your tax bill that you're paying because the incumbents are in over their heads.
