Justice Democrats is proud to support candidates with a positive vision for our future. As establishment strategies continue to fail the people, Patrick Nelson fights for a platform to uplift the lives of the extraordinary people he would represent by replacing the incumbent and fighting to:
- Save the internet through Net Neutrality
- Sustain debt-free higher education and job training programs
- Improve and expand Medicare-for-All
- Achieve a living wage for everyone
- Invest in North County infrastructure and world class rural abroad
- End the prejudice and propaganda behind the War on Drugs
Patrick made the decision to dedicate his life to public service in 2011 before entering his senior year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), where he studied Biochemistry and Biophysics. He realized that at a time when science and technology is becoming a greater part of our daily lives, that there is a need for lawmakers that are literate in these areas. For the past several years, Patrick has been a grassroots activist and was elected as a Delegate for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 Presidential Campaign. He offers a bold vision for the future of New York’s North Country and the future of our nation. Together, we’re going to build a new model of open and transparent government based upon dialogue and not demagoguery. If you believe that America should be run for the people then join our campaign. You can rest assured I will give every ounce of my strength and energy to be the best Congressional Representative I can be. He has seen first-hand the failures of the Democratic Establishment and is committed to building a new model for campaigning and public service.
”It’s time to stop the dysfunction, immaturity, and procrastination in Washington. It’s time to pass the Dream Act, fund CHIP for a full 10 years, provide for disaster relief, provide treatment for addicts, and give our armed services certainty in their funding by passing a damn budget instead of continuing resolutions that keep our government running just weeks away from another potential shutdown.” - Patrick Nelson
