At least 1,000 people met up to rally for health care rights at Burlington High School Sunday.

They joined those in about 70 other rallies around the nation, all focused on the fight to “save health care” in the United States.

A group from Plattsburgh gathered outside of Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s office. The North Country Republican voted this weekend in support of steps towards the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Burlington’s event was hosted by Lieutenant Governor David Zuckerman.
