Cindy will fight to make sure that every senior can retire with dignity. Cindy believes that Social Security and Medicare are promises we made to our seniors who worked hard and earned these benefits. Cindy will fight in Washington to stop attempts to cut benefits for current and future retirees and attempts to privatize Medicare and Social Security.

A public health crisis has taken 100,000 of our friends and neighbors in just the past five weeks. An economic crisis has driven millions out of work and stretched food pantries to their limits. And national upheaval grappled with central threats to our republic — including racial injustice, environmental catastrophe, and fundamental threats to our elections and democracy.
