Perry Gershon (NY-01) Issue Statement

Perry is fed up with Republicans like Congressman Lee Zeldin and Donald Trump, including their effort to take away health care for millions of Americans, squeezing the middle class to fund budget-busting tax giveaways for the ultra-wealthy and big corporations, and siding with the NRA instead of working to end gun violence in America. It’s unacceptable.

Perry is running for Congress because it’s time for badly-needed change in America. He will stand up to Donald Trump and anyone who tries to divide Americans by sowing discord, encouraging hate, and fomenting violence. Perry will fight for high-paying jobs, gun violence prevention, affordable healthcare, high-quality education, clean air and water, Social Security and Medicare, enhanced veterans’ benefits, an end to our nation’s never-ending wars, and reforming our democracy to stop the corruption.
