Attorney General Letitia James issued a strong call Tuesday May 24 for local Democrats to campaign this year in defense of justice, reproductive rights, gun safety and democracy both in New York State and in other states around the country.  She was the featured speaker at a reception hosted by the Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee at the Saratoga Casino and Hotel.

“Saratoga Springs Democrats were honored to meet and hear Tish James, and to be inspired by her message,” said Pat Tuz, chair of the committee.

James reminded the enthusiastic audience of her office’s advocacy on behalf of working families and individuals in the realms of housing, corporate accountability and public safety.  She also exhorted Democrats to donate and assist Attorneys General who are fighting for justice in Nevada, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, where the outcome of this year’s campaigns hang in the balance.

James also took time that afternoon to meet with leaders of local nonprofit groups that develop and manage affordable and supportive housing for people with special needs, disabilities, victims of domestic violence and of addiction.
