I am excited that Lea Webb is running to represent us in the New York State Senate. Lea is a true progressive whom I’ve worked with and admired for nearly 20 years. She is a champion for working families and our best bet to break the GOP’s grip on this Southern Tier district.
As district representative for Congressman Maurice Hinchey, I worked with Lea on many occasions. During her eight years on Binghamton City Council, she fought to expand affordable housing, improve access to health care for low-income families, prevent the privatization of nursing homes, and ban fracking.
Lea advanced essential projects that improved people’s lives, particularly those living on the margins of our society. She is a gifted organizer, communicator, and community leader. After hearing her speak at a community event, I remember Maurice telling me, “She is impressive.” Indeed, she is.
