Your Voice and Vote Counts!

2020 Census

Each decade the United States government fulfills its constitutional duty to count each and every person living in the country by conducting the Census. The importance of the Census should not be underestimated. The results and accuracy of the Census will decide how and where $700 billion in US federal funding is allocated (including funding for municipalities, schools, and hospitals) and will determine Congressional representation among the states. If you have not already, please complete your Census today.

Completing your Census will help in having where we work and live receive vitally needed funding.

Tuesday, June 23 NYS Primary

New York’s Primary Day is Tuesday, June 23.  This election is important as New York State deals with a growing budget deficit that impacts funding in general and to our facilities where we work.

After a thorough process that was open to our COPE contributors and included a questionnaire and interviews, we have endorsed the following candidates for New York State Senate and Assembly and encourage you to vote for them.  We believe the candidates listed below will best fight for quality care for all, for the issues that impact our patients, those we care for and provide services for, our communities, and stand up for working families and union members, especially dealing with COVID-19.
