    What's Next

    As you can imagine, I was really tired after the 2018 election cycle. I had entered late, not until after my consulting gig with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice ended on January 31, 2018.

    Endorsement by Farm Women United

    FARM WOMEN UNITED ENDORSES DR. KAHN FOR NY-21 Schroon Lake, NY – After reviewing the agricultural policies supported by Congressional candidates in NY-21, Farm Women United has endorsed Green Party candidate Dr. Lynn Kahn for her strong stance and understanding of North Country farmers, especially dairy farmers. Farm Women United, a national network started in Pennsylvania, was organized by farm women no longer willing to be ignored or silenced by the powerful special interests currently controlling our nation’s farm and food policies. “Dr. Kahn will meet with and listen to the actual victims of criminal, federal dairy and trade policies. Those victims are the real dairy farmers  I like to call the blue-collar farmers,” stated Brenda Cochran, President of Farm Women United. “Blue-collar farmers are the backbone of our dairy farming communities.” Congresswoman Stefanik voted for the 2018 Farm Bill which favors consolidated, industrialized farms over local, family farmers. “Congresswoman Stefanik is out of touch with our dairy farmers, and beholden to big business, not real farmers. She has had the power for nearly four years to set a fair price for farm milk and has not done that,” said Dr. Kahn. “I am honored to receive the endorsement of Farm Women United. When elected, I will demand a $20 per (hundred pounds) floor price for milk used for manufacturing and Congressional hearings on milk pricing from the point of view of real working farmers.” Dr. Kahn has also been endorsed by Veterans In Politics International.

    Transforming Veterans Affairs: A Plan and a Kick in the Pants

    Based on a speech delivered by Dr. Kahn to Veterans in Politics, International Las Vegas, Nevada 8/27/2015        The U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a whole system is failing miserably and the culture of the Department and all its facilities is miserably dysfunctional. Yes, there are some wonderful, skillful and dedicated professionals in VA medical centers, outpatient clinics, community-based clinics (“storefront vet centers”) and veterans’ nursing homes. Yes, a few VA health facilities provide high-quality care. Yes, the VA has a history of research into the signature injuries of war – most recently prosthetics for amputated limbs and Traumatic Brain Injury. Yes, a new administration has voiced commitment to solving identified problems. However, the VA is a deeply flawed Department and only a true system-wide transformation of how we provide care and benefits to our veterans will bring meaningful change. This article summarizes the VA problems, recommends a powerful transformational approach, and ends with a “kick in the pants” action to jumpstart change.

    Justice Reform in America: An Action Plan

    America has a problem with violence – we create too much of it here at home and export too much of it around the world. As an independent candidate for President of the United States, my solutions for reducing and preventing violence are the heart of my campaign platform - Fix Government, Build Peace.  My action plan is a comprehensive approach to reduce and prevent violence; transform law enforcement into a community policing model that uses best practices to build stronger communities; repair the damage done by our broken justice systems; and rebuild trust in justice and law enforcement in America so together we can improve public safety.
