Cynthia Nixon made a return trip upstate a week after declaring her candidacy for governor.

The Rensselaer County Village of Hoosick Falls discovered in 2016 their water had been contaminated by the chemical PFOA from a nearby industrial plant. The actress and activist sat down in an old Victorian home and discussed the situation with affected residents. Also there was the former EPA Regional Administrator for New York Judith Enck.  She gave Nixon her first significant endorsement.

Nixon's appearance was going on at the same time word came down that the Senate Democrats, after years apart, have reunified under a plan organized by Governor Cuomo.  The challenger said she was not impressed.

Wednesday's appearance came one day after her first national television interview on "The Wendy Williams Show."
