Welcome Letter

Greetings!

Welcome to my official New York State Assembly website. From looking through my recent press releases to perusing a long list of bills that I have introduced, you can use this website to learn more about the work that I am doing both in the Legislature and in the community.

Since I was first elected to represent the 67th Assembly district in 2006, I have taken my responsibility to you and the district very seriously. You and I are partners in our efforts to improve our community and our state, and it is critical to that partnership that I hear from you about your concerns, problems you might be experiencing or opinions you have on any issues. My office works on a variety of constituent, community and policy issues.

If you are a tenant being harassed or facing eviction, would like information about affordable housing in the district or programs that will help lower your rent, such as SCRIE and DRIE, please call my office. If there is a dangerous intersection you would like to report or an illegal hotel operating on your block or in your building, please call my office. If you would like to discuss some of the important policy issues of the day, such as education or environmental issues, government reform and campaign finance, minimum wage or the Dream Act, women’s issues, reproductive health or LGBTQ advocacy or anything else, please feel free to call.

My district office is a bustling place, with walk-in hours Monday through Friday from 10 am – 5 pm. You can drop by to visit at any time or you can call or email to set up a time to talk.
