Retiree Organization Endorses Alyse Galvin for U.S. House
Cites Commitment to Expanding and Protecting Earned Social Security Benefits
Anchorage, AK – Members of the Alliance for Retired Americans proudly announced their endorsement of Alyse Galvin for election to the U.S. House from Alaska today. The Alaska Alliance for Retired Americans is a grassroots advocacy organization with more than 9,500 members across the state.
“Alyse Galvin understands the challenges facing older Americans, and retirees in Alaska can be confident that she will fight for our interests in Washington,” said Susan Reilly, president of the Alaska Alliance for Retired Americans. “She knows that seniors have earned the Social Security and Medicare benefits they rely on, and she will battle every day to protect our retirement security. We are proud to endorse her.”
In sharp contrast, Galvin’s opponent, incumbent Rep. Don Young, has earned a lifetime score of just 14% in the Alliance’s Congressional Voting Record. Young has also worked to cut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and repeal the Affordable Care Act. More than half of all Americans between the ages of 50 and 64 have one or more pre-existing health condition.
“We can count on Alyse to fight to allow Medicare to negotiate lower prices for the life-saving prescription drugs older people rely on,” Reilly continued. “Now more than ever, it is vital that we have senators and a representative in Washington who care about Alaska seniors and vote accordingly. In 2020 voting for the right person is literally a matter of life or death.”
