Ann Brancato has long been a supporter of and an advocate for the men and women who have fought for our country. Ann’s husband, John, served in the United States Air Force for over 30 years, retiring as a Colonel. Throughout her life, she has taken action to support this noble community, notably by volunteering to help support veterans and first responders with emotional and mental health issues by soliciting grant money to pay for health programs for Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).

In Albany, Ann will continue to support those who have sacrificed to protect us. She will fight every day to ensure that veterans have the resources they need. She plans to utilize her vast experience in healthcare to create and support legislation that guarantees our heroes have access to the quality healthcare they have earned. She will also use her experience as a program developer and fundraiser to secure much-needed funding for VA medical centers and other programs designed to assist those who serve, and those who have served, and their families. Veterans sacrifice so much to keep our State and Country safe. Ann vows to do all she can to return the favor by supporting them in every way possible.
