Mass-Care Endorses Amaad Rivera for State Senate

Boston, MA -  Mass-Care, the Commonwealth’s largest advocacy group devoted to single payer health care reform, announced its endorsement of Amaad Rivera. “Mr. Rivera is the progressive voice that we need representing all of us in the State Legislature,” said Jessica Gallo, Interim Executive Director of Mass-Care. “Mr. Rivera recognizes the role single payer can play in reducing costs, expanding preventative care and decreasing disparities in access to care. It is time for an improved “Medicare for All” system, one which Mr. Rivera will fight for!”

“I am proud to stand with Mass-Care. Hampden County has some of the greatest disparities in health outcomes in the state, investing in a single payer health system will allow our community to address its’ long-standing needs. Hampden needs elected officials that will not stand on the sidelines in this important fight. I am running to be a bold leader on Beacon Hill for our community"  said, Rivera.

Mass-Care supports establishing a single payer health care system in Massachusetts as the most effective way to control costs. In a fast moving election cycle, it is very important to become involved now!
