Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre Appointed chair of Assembly Committee on Libraries and Education Technology

“I’m honored to have been appointed chair of the Assembly Committee on Libraries and Education Technology. I want to thank Speaker Carl Heastie for the opportunity to further advocate for these critical community institutions and advance legislation that helps our students succeed in the classroom and beyond.

“I’m also proud of the Assembly Majority’s commitment to improving diversity in our chamber’s leadership position, ensuring that voices which have historically been ignored are heard loud and clear in Albany. All New Yorkers deserve to feel seen and heard within the halls of their government. This year will no doubt be a challenging one as we continue to address the unprecedented challenges before us, but I’m eager to begin working with my colleagues in the Legislature to address the issues that matter most to our families.”
