NY 22 Congressional Candidates

Multiple candidates are running for NY22. All candidates will need to collect enough signatures to be on the ballot. A primary election will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2024.

Clemmie Harris is a former advisor to New York Gov. David Paterson, Investigator with the NY State Police, an Army veteran and a Utica University professor.

Sarah Klee Hood is an Air Force veteran, elected councilor, mother raising two young daughters, environmental policy expert, and native Central New Yorker.

Campaign Finance

Incumbent Unrepresentative Williams (R) has raised over $1.7 million. Only 4% are from small individual contributions less than $200. 

Clemmie Harris has raised over $50,000. 11% are from small individual contributions. 

Sarah Klee Hood has raised over $750,000. 55% are from small individual contributions. 

John Mannion has raised over $350,000. 23% are from small individual contributions. 

Issues

Healthcare

Clemmie believes quality and affordable healthcare is a right and not a privilege. For too long, too many at or below the poverty line had to choose between paying for healthcare and medicine and paying their bills. In Congress, Clemmie will eliminate barriers and ensure quality and affordable health insurance is available no matter a person’s income or zip code.

Klee Hood supports “Medicare for All” or any similar policy that would transition all Americans to single payer universal government health care.

Mannion favors keeping in place and improving the Affordable Care Act, while allowing Americans with private insurance or insurance provided through their employers to keep their plans. Mannion said he supports providing government-run health insurance as an option.

Additional issues will be posted as this race gets closer.
