What does this spreadsheet track?Election Day 2020 is coming up, New York!
5
This tracker is a reference tool for how candidates (both incumbents (Republican and Democrat) and Democrat challengers) have spoken about the NY Health Act (2020 Bill Numbers: Senate Bill S3577A/ Assembly Bill A5248A) - have they shown support for the NY Health Act? If so, how?

Support for the NY Health Act is shown in several ways:
1) whether they have sponsored the 2020 NY Health Act amended bill (if they are incumbent),
2) have they signed NYPAN's Healthcare Hero Candidate Sign On Letter,
3) do they list the NY Health Act on their campaign website?


If the answer is no to any of these points, we encourage you to use this tracker to push your candidate to become a more public healthcare champion. Ask them to fill out the candidate sign on letter and return it to the Campaign for NY Health. Ask them to post it to their website. Ask them to make a video about the NY Health Act or to hold a public forum about the need for guaranteed healthcare during this pandemic or to incorporate NYHA into their candidate campaign materials! Feel free to be creative about this. And let us know how these conversations go! Volunteer to adopt a district here: http://bit.ly/NYHAAdoptACandidate and we will reach out to help you encourage your local Senate and Assembly candidates to become champions for the NY Health Act ahead of the November elections!

What does that mean for the #NYHealthAct? Priorities now are calling candidates, clarifying their NYHA commitments and getting new commitments to champion the NY Health Act if elected to office. There's never been a more important time to call Candidates or flood their inbox!

These are all active candidates seeking elected office on November 3rd in New York State. Registering to vote and turning out in local elections allows you to hold them accountable with your vote. Getting commitments to the NY Health Act now helps identify new healthcare champions in the New York State Legislature and helps keep elected officials accountable to their word when they come into office - and we can do this through our votes! If you cannot legally vote due to immigration status, these are still your future representatives - you deserve government officials who fight for the health of all New Yorkers!
