Who are the real #CareChamps?
The New York Caring Majority asked candidates in key State Senate races throughout New York State where they stand on our agenda. We sent out 36 questionnaires to candidates in all major parties and received 13 back. We wanted to learn where candidates stand on including long-term care in the New York State Health Act and if they will fight for New York seniors, people with disabilities, caregivers, and care workers to ensure everyone can age and live with dignity and respect.
Educate yourself about where the candidates in your race stand. You can find the answers to the questionnaires for all 13 respondents using the links below. Don’t forget to vote on November 6!
We also encourage you to check out questionnaires compiled by one of our coalition groups: the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Association of New York here.
