Dana Balter

NY-24 (D)
Current office holder: John Katko (R)
Dana is running for Congress because the people she loves, the country she loves, and the values she loves are all being threatened and she cannot stand idly by. She is currently working toward her PhD at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs where her coursework has focused on education policy, public finance, and accountability in government. Previously, she worked in special education for adults with cognitive disabilities.
How does Dana align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Dana supports stimulating economic growth by investing in green jobs, ensuring the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, and fighting for a living minimum wage. She also wants to strengthen public education by fully funding and investing in the quality of public schools.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Dana supports reforming the criminal justice system with a focus on rehabilitation and fairness.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Dana believes health care is a human right and she supports Medicare for all. She also wants to reinstate environmental protections, enact a carbon tax, and move toward 100% renewable energy.
