The first legislation in the 2017 NYS Assembly session has passed, and guess what? Joe Errigo voted against women’s right to choose and women’s ability to obtain contraceptives just when abortions have decreased. Really, Joe?
Assembly Bill A1748 updates current law and ensures continued protection of a woman’s right to choose. Assembly Bill A1378 requires commercial group health insurance policies to cover all FDA-approved contraceptive drugs, devices and products when prescribed by a health care provider.
Like most Republicans, Joe Errigo wants to take the women of New York back to 1950.
So, as President Obama reminded us often, it’s important more important than ever to remain vigilant and take action. Change happens at the grass roots, and good government begins with you. Political activism is the best way to make your voice heard. You can’t influence anything by sitting on the sidelines.
Stand up and fight for the causes you believe in! Participate in the process by helping with the hard work of local politics. There are roles in this process for everyone.
From Buffalo News:
We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of Mendon Democratic Committee member, Paul MacAulay in December. The editorial board at the Democrat and Chronicle wrote this piece in his honor titled, “A true believer in justice for all”. Please take a moment to read it. Paul’s obituary is posted beneath as well. Donations in Paul’s name can be made to Campaign for Justice or the Mendon Public Library.
Very important that we elect Barbara Baer to the Assembly.

I find it sadly unremarkable that the man who is said to have compared Sheldon Silver with Adolf Hitler, Napoleon and the Antichrist finds so much to love about Donald Trump. Silver got his just deserts (albeit decades too late, and he and Dean Skelos are but the tip of the corruption iceberg), but both Rep. Chris Collins and The Donald should learn to think before they speak — and, more importantly, to inform their thinking.
Collins was the first sitting member of Congress to hitch his star to Trump by publicly endorsing him and then seconding his nomination at the Republican National Convention. He was also quick to follow Trump’s lead by accusing Khizr and Ghazala Khan, bereaved parents of Army Captain Humayun Kahn, of using their son’s death to advance a political agenda. The public outcry against this diatribe — and countless other crude, biased and outrageous remarks made by Trump and blithely accepted by Collins — should extend to a demand by residents of the 27th Congressional District that we replace this callous individual with a candidate who embraces the Constitution and who will fight for the rights of all of us: candidate Diana Kastenbaum.
We need to revive thoughtful, ethical governance, beginning at the state and local levels. Ms. Kastenbaum stands strong on the issues that affect New Yorkers: jobs and the economy, education, college affordability, healthcare and energy, the concerns of senior citizens, and the environment. I urge you to learn more about this accomplished businesswoman — and to vote for her in November.
Join us for a beautiful evening on July 14th to
Meet and Greet Diana Kastenbaum, our candidate for the U.S. Congress
Diana is an energetic business leader (owns and operates Pinnacle Manufacturing in Batavia), who:
Her opponent, Chris Collins, was the first member of Congress to endorse Donald Trump.
He is no more the right person to represent you in Congress than is Donald Trump the right person to be president. Help make this his last campaign.
Please join your friends and the Mendon Democratic Committee to meet Diana and learn how we can ensure our community values are represented in Washington.
Authorized by Diana Kastenbaum for Congress
