Assemblyman Hosts ‘Trailblazing with Byrne’ In Southeast

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R,C,I,SAM,ROS-Mahopac) is pleased to report the successful completion of his second Trailblazing with Byrne event of the year on Saturday, May 22nd in the Town of Southeast at the Tonetta Lake Trailhead, which is part of the Maybrook Trailway and larger Empire State Trail.

Byrne met with constituents both virtually and in-person for an hour of Q & A, which was simultaneously live-streamed on YouTube, before taking an hour-long walk along the Empire State Trail to continue the discussion, promote healthy living and take in the natural beauty. Discussion included taxes and spending, public safety and policing, proposed education mandates like critical race theory, and Governor Cuomo’s growing list of scandals including his withholding of COVID-19 nursing home mortality info and self-serving book deal.

The event garnered participation from a number of local residents, including Putnam Co. Legislator Joseph Castellano, Southeast Town Councilmen Eric Larca and John O’Connor, Southeast Town Planning Board Member Eric Cyprus, former Putnam Deputy Co. Exec and Chair of Co. Legislature Dan Birmingham and former MTA Police Chief Kevin McConville.

“Thank you to everyone who participated in our second Trailblazing with Byrne event this year.” said Byrne. “This event provides me an additional opportunity to engage with members of our community both in-person and virtually. Not only did we get the chance to discuss a wide variety of important issues, but we also got some fresh air, exercise and enjoyment from viewing the beautiful scenery along the trail. I look forward to continuing our Trailblazing walks throughout the spring and summer.”

“Thank you to Assemblyman Byrne for hosting his Trailblazing with Byrne in the Town of Southeast. It served as a great opportunity to meet with residents and discuss important state and local issues of importance,” added Putnam County Legislator Joseph Castellano
