Hempstead, NY – The political committees of Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic Action Fund have proudly announced their endorsement of James Gaughran for New York State Senate.


“Planned Parenthood of Nassau County (PPNC) and Planned Parenthood of Hudson Peconic (PPHP) serve thousands of women and families every year in our community. These thousands of individuals need and deserve elected officials who will stand strong in support of comprehensive reproductive health care services and sexuality education programs,” said JoAnn Smith, Treasurer of the Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee. “The political committees of Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund and Planned Parenthood of Hudson Peconic Action Fund have proudly endorsed New York State Senate candidate James Gaughran, as he has demonstrated his commitment to protecting access to the essential, life-saving services that PPNC and PPHP provide.”


“As attacks on women’s health care have increased – and Planned Parenthood funding has been threatened by politicians as well as Presidential candidate Donald Trump – the PPNC Action Fund and the PPHP Action Fund political committees’ endorsement of SD-5 candidate James Gaughran is indicative of the confidence we have in him to stand in solidarity with us and fight to ensure that the reproductive rights are secure and advanced in New York,” said Reina Schiffrin, Treasurer of the PPHP Action Fund Political Committee.
