Byrne Announces Additional Trailblazing with Byrne Events

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R,C,I,SAM,ROS-Mahopac) is pleased to announce the extension of his Trailblazing with Byrne tour throughout the district. Byrne’s 2021 trailblazing events began earlier this year in May. He has since hosted four different outdoor informal forums where constituents of all backgrounds gathered at trailheads along the Empire State Trail to discuss a wide range of issues, prior to taking a healthy walk outdoors along the trail.

Byrne has hosted these events in the towns of Somers, Carmel/Mahopac, Yorktown and Southeast/Brewster.His office will conclude this year’s trailblazing tour by hosting events in the two remaining towns within New York’s 94th Assembly District: Putnam Valley and Patterson. 

“Each of our trailblazing events this year has garnered valuable participation from people of all different backgrounds,” said Byrne. “We’ve had many robust conversations about issues ranging from taxes, infrastructure, parks, education, public safety and more. While our assembly office remains open and accessible to all, this is one more way I’m able to reach out to people and be accessible in-person at a location near you. I look forward to continuing our Trailblazing with Byrne tour throughout the month of August in Putnam Valley and Patterson.”

Each Trailblazing with Byrne event begins with a scheduled hour of informal discussion about various issues facing the state and region. This portion of the event is live streamed on YouTube so people can participate in the conversation virtually as well. The discussion is followed promptly by an hour-long walk along a nearby trail where the conversation continues and participants get to enjoy some exercise, promote healthy living and take in the natural beauty of the area.

As always, any constituent seeking to meet or speak with Byrne or a representative from his office is encouraged to contact his district office at (845) 278-2923 or visit
