Welcome Letter

Dear Neighbor,

As a lifelong resident of the 134th District and Monroe County, it is my honor and privilege to serve our community as a member of the New York State Assembly and as your voice at the state Capitol. It has been my pleasure to be a common-sense representative for the towns of Greece, Ogden, and Parma, along with the villages of Hilton and Spencerport. My aim is to advocate for policies that will make our community and state a better place for all who call it home.

By using my official Assembly website, you can learn more about the legislation I am sponsoring, the latest news coming out of Albany, and ways to access state resources. Of course, I always wish to hear from you directly on the issues and policies that are most important to you, and your views on the issues that we address in state government.

You can also contact me directly by sending me an e-mail, calling, or stopping by the office. My door is always open, and I will be happy to assist you. Please let me know if there is any way I may be able to serve you!

Your Assemblyman,
Josh Jensen
