Leadership that Cares

I’m Michelle Ostrelich, and I’m running for New York State Senate because it’s time for good people to stand up for what matters. I will fight for you every day to make sure hard-working people are no longer left behind.

Past, Present, Future

To me, the American dream is defined by the work and sacrifice of our parents and grandparents, of the generations that came before us. They paved the way for greater hope and opportunity for all of us. My parents worked hard so that I could go to college and law school. My husband and I worked hard so that when we had our first daughter 13 years ago, I could stay home with her.

Now, as a mother of two young women, I am ready to fight to make this world a better place for ALL of our children, for ALL of our families.

Your Issues are My Issues

My mom has Alzheimer’s. My husband is a cancer doctor. My nephew has a complex genetic disorder. I understand the damage of our dysfunctional health care system. I know many of you understand it, too. Politicians in Washington DC and Albany have lost sight of American values. Hard-working folks like you and your neighbors have been left behind.

As your next State Senator, my goals are simple – grow our middle class, guarantee health care for all and create a future where our children are secure and can succeed. We need to embrace families and deliver opportunity regardless of race, gender, religion, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation.

I will fight for you every day to make sure hard-working people are no longer left behind.

Leadership That Works

I’ve spent a lot of time listening to people in my community – as a neighbor, PTO co-president, board president of a local community center, and as a trustee for a local hospital foundation.

Your words, your concerns deepened my commitment to advocacy. I marched, I wrote letters, I knocked on doors, I made phone calls – but I knew there was more. I knew that if we want to see real change in Albany, we have to change who makes the decisions.

And that’s why I’m running for State Senate. Join me in our fight for what is right – for the people of this district, and for all of New York State.
