Rockland Congresswoman Nita Lowey Announces she Won’t Run for Re-election in 2020

That was Rockland Congresswoman Nita Lowey, speaking last month on the floor of the House of Representatives on the anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks. She announced yesterday that after 32 years in Congress she will not be running again next year. Clarkstown legislator Harriet Cornell says though she’s retiring, she won’t stop working…

As a member of, and eventually the head of, the House Appropriations Committee, Lowey says she was most proud of her work to clean up and protect Long Island Sound and the Hudson River, and increase access to Head Start, after-school programs, and community health centers for thousands of area children and families. She also authored legislation regarding DWI laws and food allergy labeling.
