Win by pro-reproductive health care advocate Todd Kaminsky demonstrates New Yorkers’ appetite for change

(Hempstead, NY) Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee celebrates the election of Todd Kaminsky to lead the 9th Senate District representing Nassau County.  Kaminsky’s election is significant as it adds another solidly pro-reproductive health care supporter to the New York State Senate. 

Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York Political Committee and the Planned Parenthood Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee relied on a strategic campaign plan which made it clear that this election was pivotal to the future of comprehensive reproductive health care in the state.

“Nassau County residents know that access to reproductive health care is fundamental and key to our good health,” said JoAnn D. Smith, Treasurer, Planned Parenthood Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee. “Our advocates rallied their friends and neighbors and that made a real difference on Election Day.”

“Every day we hear from supporters just how important access to reproductive health care is. Todd Kaminsky’s victory is important for all New Yorkers as we send to Albany a strong advocate for reproductive health, rights and justice.” said Reina Schiffrin, President/CEO, Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic Action Fund Political Committee.

“This election is just the beginning of our work as New York continues to stand strong against nationwide attacks on reproductive health care and the restrictions placed on women’s access to health care,” said Joan Malin, Chair, Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York Political Committee. “The PPANY PC will keep up our momentum as we roll up our sleeves and head into the November elections to support candidates focused on ensuring access to sexual and reproductive health care for all New Yorkers.”
