Jeff Beals joins Rita Vanacore of ‘Planet Seniors’ on Radio Kingston earlier this week to discuss why he is advocating for Medicare for All, raising Social Security benefits, and forgiving student loan debt:

Here’s a snapshot of the remarkable citizens driving this movement for change in #NY19. Jeff Beals went out to a recent #FasoFriday in Kingston and saw friends old and new, all driven by different outrages to push for one goal: winning back our seat in Congress from corporate power and corrupt lobbying groups. We’re going to make our government work for working people again
I am a little late with this but I think Beals is a great candidate and hope that someone out there on the internets who wouldnt have seen it… somehow makes their way here and does. It would be even better if that person could vote for him, and if not… send a little cash.
Jane O’Meara Sanders, the wife of Bernie Sanders, joined Maura Derrane and Dáithí Ó Sé on the Today show.
Dr Sanders was speaking ahead of her talk at Limerick’s Concert Hall as part of an Irish American festival.
She revealed that Bernie’s campaign was not supported by Harvey Weinstein, a well-known supporter of the Democratic party, and said that Weinstein advised the Clinton campaign on how to defeat her husband.
On whether or not Bernie would run for president in 2020 when he is 77 years of age, she simply said that they believe “age is just a number”.

We joined workers in Hyde Park yesterday to speak out against another act of corporate greed – the Cuilinary Institute of America is firing 17 committed union workers and replacing them with low-wage, no-future contract labor. Why? It’s a renown school that enjoys not-for-profit status and dispenses millions in executive compensation. This is about greed and shattered lived. We must confront corporate greed with people power
Just in case you have forgotten, here are some of Jeff’s priorities:
We must #UniteNY19 behind a platform that benefits the vast majority of our citizens. I’ve brought people together before as a U.S. diplomat. Now I want to unite us here at home for these causes:
>*Unite to provide Medicare for all.
*Unite to lower prescription drug prices.
*Unite to increase Social Security benefits.
*Unite to rebuild our infrastructure.
*Unite to develop rural jobs, small businesses and local farms.
*Unite to fight income inequality and a rigged economy.
*Unite to make public education tuition free.
*Unite to end racial injustice, bigotry and violence.
*Unite to protect women’s reproductive health.
*Unite for a foreign policy that puts diplomacy over endless war.
