Activist Allison Fine announces candidacy for Rep. Lowey's seatPosted: Updated:
Sleepy Hollow activist Allison Fine announced her candidacy today for Rep. Nita Lowey’s seat.
This is Fine's first run for an elected office. The wife and mother of three boys says she has known Lowey for years.
"I volunteered on her first campaign, and I think she's an amazing trailblazer in Congress,” says Fine.
To remain focused, she resigned as the chairwoman of the national board of NARAL, a pro-choice nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C.
Her plans include advocating for women’s equality, workers' rights and social good.
“What we've seen over the last few years is big tech working hard to misuse our data and put our children at risk, and that will be a top priority for me in Congress,” says Fine.
She joins Attorney Mondaire Jones, Assemblyman David Buchwald and Sen. David Carlucci as the fourth Democratic candidate to be considered.
Beginning next week, she intends to host a series of living room conversations to get to know the constituents in her district.
In October, Lowey announced that she will not seek re-election after serving Westchester and Rockland for three decades.
