Our group’s focus is health care: Advocating for policies that will make healthcare more affordable and more accessible to more people. During the past year we have focused on building awareness of the New York Health Act.
Our group is made up of 5-10 people who actively attend meetings and 56 people on our email list. Members are active in many ways, calling and visiting their representatives, writing editorials, presenting at town, school board, and county board meetings, where we have requested resolutions in favor of the NY Health Act. We have coordinated events with regional groups in Glens Falls NY, Long Lake, and Saranac Lake supporting each other in our quest and advocacy of single payer healthcare finance.
The Saratoga Health Committee meet monthly.
Committee member, Dr. George Jolly, has been doing calculations of the possible savings to towns, school districts, and counties under the NY Health Act. Activists interested in seeing such calculations for their local government entities can contact him.
