LETTER: Ritchie should support NY Health Act, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, Watertown Daily Times

As a constituent of state Sen. Patty Ritchie’s, I have written to her, called her office and gone in person to talk with members of her staff, all to urge her to support the New York Health Act (A.4738/S.4840), which would ensure her constituents and all New Yorkers affordable health care.

After all, given the mess Congress has made of health care reform, I believe it is incumbent on her to do whatever she can to help her constituents with health care. Since she is a deputy vice chair of the Senate committee that deals with health issues, this means — at the very least — getting the bill out of committee so that it can be debated. I believe her constituents deserve the debate so that we know where she stands!
