To the editor:
The election is almost upon us and I must emphasize the importance of electing Patrick Nelson the New York State Senator for the 43rd District. We have a chance to replace a do-nothing politician who has refused to debate her opponent, with a person who truly cares about the issues that most concern us, such as health care, working families and the environment. Patrick has been endorsed by, among others, the Civil Service Employees Association, Public Employees Federation, Working Families Party, Planned Parenthood, and Capital Women. Let’s vote as though our lives depend on it (and they do) and send Patrick Nelson to the New York State Senate.
