    As a young woman and an elected official, I cannot overstate how vital Congresswoman Lowey’s leadership is for Rockland County. Not only is a she a leader on protecting woman’s healthcare options and fighting for student loan debt relief, but her role as a key leader on the Appropriations committee makes her a tremendous advocate for our communities. She is one of the strongest supporters of Israel in the US Congress and ensures vital foreign aid to Israel, and support for the Iron Dome missile defense system.
