Build Public Renewables Act

“The law had been introduced — and failed to pass — the last two consecutive years before finally passing this year. New York state Assembly Member Sarahana Shrestha, elected this past November, was a key force in pushing the legislation through the state assembly.”

The Future Must Be Beautiful

In her first six months as New York State Assemblymember, Sarahana helped to pass the historic Build Public Renewables Act, and stood up against corporate landlords and energy utilities. Re-elect Sarahana to continue building the beautiful future we deserve.

End corporate fossil fuels, lower energy costs, and build 100% renewable energy with a Green New Deal

Guarantee universal healthcare—including mental health, substance, long-term, & reproductive care

Reimagine our housing system to ensure affordable, high quality homes for all, and stop cost of living from skyrocketing

Fully fund public pillars like SUNY, schools, and hospitals to provide the essential services and good jobs the Hudson Valley deserves

Hello, my name is Sarahana Shrestha.

In my first year as Assemblymember, I helped to pass the historic Build Public Renewables Act, stood with New Yorkers to tax the ultra-rich and fund our workers, introduced legislation and held seven town halls to protect my constituents from Central Hudson, and hosted two mass calls to keep my district up to date on the outcome of the State budget and the legislative session.

I’m running for re-election in New York State Assembly District 103 because there is a lot of work left to be done in changing the culture of Albany and fighting for the future Hudson Valley deserves. Our residents know that now is the time to build a government that works for everyone.
