The 21st Congressional District is a unique area with remarkable people. At times our Federal Government does not acknowledge the issues of rural or small-town areas such as our District, resulting in its failure to meet its responsibilities to our region. Many federal policies favor large corporations and other interests over our people and our communities.
In 2016, this frustration caused many of our neighbors to vote for a dramatic change in Washington DC. We can acknowledge the legitimate aspects of their discontent and address their concerns within the framework of the Democratic Party. We can have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
David Mastrianni, M.D., believes that now is the time to rebuild the Federal Government in a fashion that addresses the concerns of rural or small-town areas, and specifically the 21st Congressional District. This rebuilding can take place by addressing issues such as healthcare, agriculture, infrastructure, education, and the environment. For years as a physician, David has heard the stories of the people of our area. The 21st Congressional District needs representation by a serious, experienced person from the region, someone who has dealt with complex issues and understands the diversity of our people.
David Mastrianni, M.D., was raised in Saratoga Springs, and was the third generation of his family in the area. He graduated from the Saratoga Springs public school system and enjoyed his teen years in the Adirondacks in the 1970s, before attending Princeton for an undergraduate degree in American History.
David then graduated from Albany Medical College and, after further medical training in Washington, D.C. and oncology in Boston, he returned to Saratoga Springs with his wife, Lucille Albergo, a nurse practitioner. Both David and his Lucille worked for a time at Albany Medical College, where he continues to volunteer as a teacher.
In 1999, David and Lucille opened their own oncology practice in Saratoga Springs and ran it for many years, employing physicians, nurses, and staff to care for thousands of patients. For 15 years, David also served as the oncology consultant to Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, driving regularly across the District. Five years ago, they moved their practice into Saratoga Hospital. David recently finished his full-time clinical career and now works part-time as the Senior Vice President of the Saratoga Hospital Medical Group.
Together with his wife, David has 3 children who are all graduates of the local public schools and experienced Adirondack campers. For 10 years, the family has had a second home in Schroon Lake which is the location of the campaign headquarters.
David is a lifelong Democrat. Recent events in our nation have prompted him to offer to serve those same New Yorkers from a new position: that of a member of Congress.
David’s platforms emphasize the need for the Federal Government to recognize and support individuals and communities, particularly those in rural and small-town areas. This emphasis on a government of the people, by the people, and for the people can be seen in his approach to many issues facing our region. Please read them carefully, and discuss them with your family, friends, and us.
