Letters to the Editor: Election 2018: Support for Matt Retig

September 05, 2018

The hot pink lawn signs Women for Schmitt baffle me. Most women I know want their candidate to demonstrate he is for THEM.

Matt Rettig is that candidate. He’s pledged to carry on the work of James Skoufis to support legislation such as the Contraceptive Coverage Act; Pay Equity; Victims of Violence Act; and the complete Reproductive Health Act. He will not block this legislation like the Republicans have done.

Matt wants legislation that secures women’s rights and makes NY a more compassionate state for our seniors, daughters and granddaughters.

Matt is FOR women who work for small businesses but don’t have legal protections from sexual harassment; FOR changing NY law to allow those woman to recover legal fees; FOR protecting victims of sex trafficking from being protected for prostitution.

Matt will fight FOR working mothers who are paid lower salaries than men with children. He wants to prevent realtors and landlords from discriminating against victims of domestic violence. Matt trusts women to make their own reproductive health care decisions. He will fight FOR women to have access to contraception in insurance plans that also cover Viagra.

When electing our next Assemblyman, women should consider Matt Rettig. He demonstrates through his positions and actions that he is the only candidate who is truly FOR women.
