John Hall is an outstanding candidate for Congress in New Yorkâs 19th Congressional District held by Republican Sue Kelly. He is the only candidate in the Democratic primary to have won elections, to his school board and county legislature, and established a successful record on education and the environment. A popular musician (with his band, Orleans) and an environmental leader since the 1970s, John has strong progressive positions, favoring an end to the occupation of Iraq, a single-payer universal health care system, a major commitment to alternative energy, and protection of workersâ rights to form unions, womenâs right to choose, and civil rights. He is a sharp critic of the dishonesty, cronyism, and pandering of the Bush Administration and Republican Congress.
