Thank you for joining our fight to protect our land, farms and our homes! There is much more work to be done to ensure that any upgrade to the transmission lines in our region is done responsibly and that our voices are heard. The following page will provide you with information on projects in our district and my efforts on providing Hudson Valley families with a voice on energy issues. As your representative, I've written to the governor and the PSC advocating for underground lines for the proposed energy highway and against the proposed NYSEG line in Ghent. I've also opposed FERC's plan to charge higher rates for our Hudson Valley region since day one. As you know, ratepayers in the Hudson Valley district are facing an unnecessary financial burden as a result of a "perfect storm" of energy issues. Any increase in our energy costs is simply unacceptable.
Together, we can make a difference.
