Welcome Letter

Dear Neighbor,

Welcome to my New York State Assembly website.

This page is a way for us to keep in touch about the work I do both in Albany and at home to help make Central New York the best it can be.

It is an honor to represent our diverse and vibrant region, which is why I am working diligently to attract more good jobs, improve our schools and keep our families safe.

I look forward to your feedback — in order to be an effective representative, I need to hear from those I serve.

In addition, I encourage you to use the entire Assembly website as a tool to stay informed about the issues being considered by the state legislature.
