To qualify, we need 75 in-district donations of $250 or less, totaling to $4000. Can you help us meet these goals?

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.

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.
