What does a nurse bring to an elected position in the State Legislature? A nurse wants to take care of us, listens to our struggles, offers solutions and can connect us to important resources and individuals to keep our lives healthy. My neighbor Valli Geiger is a nurse and is running for another term as a State representative. Valli’s step into elected public service springs from her passion for the health of a person, a community and the environment. She was Rockland’s City Councilor and Mayor bringing an early voice and ideas to address affordable housing.

Valli uses her voice to ask powerful questions and she challenges others to use creative approaches to unlock opportunities and move forward. Valli understands navigating governmental procedures, drafting bill proposals, meeting protocols, and legal boundaries. If you want an experienced, intelligent representative who sees the world through the lens of a compassionate nurse, it is important to vote for Valli Geiger in November.
