You would think Laura Ahearn felt like she was up against it 25 years ago, working out of a single room in her house with two small kids, trying to find a way to give sexual abuse victims the strength and heart to stand up to their abusers, a chance to survive.
Ahearn is relentless — a fighter — and that’s what she will bring to the table in Albany if elected to the state Senate.
“I have never backed down from protecting our most vulnerable among us — from children and families to seniors and veterans to victims of hate and even unscrupulous contractors who fail to pay wages due,” she said. “People who need health care are victims. People who have outdated cesspools are victims. I’m centered on fighting for our community.”
