“During my 23 years as fire commissioner of the Medford Fire District and as a proud union member, I’ve come to know people from all walks of life in our local communities, and I’m so honored and excited to begin working on their behalf in the state Assembly,” said DeStefano. “Throughout my career, I’ve always advocated for bi-partisanship and been willing to work with everyone, even those who I don’t fully agree with, and I’ll do the same as your assemblyman. Regardless of political party, I’m eager to work with all of my colleagues to pass meaningful legislation that benefits all New Yorkers and am fully prepared to advocate for the issues our resident’s value most.”
