Statement by Assemblyman Otis on Congresswoman Nita Lowey’s Announcement to Leave Congress in 2021

Heartfelt congratulations are in order for Congresswoman Nita Lowey for her years of outstanding public service. Nita has been a partner to advocates, local officials and Westchester residents throughout her productive and trailblazing career in public service.

Nita has served Westchester and our state with determination and dedication, fighting for critical funding for New York State and successfully bringing in resources regardless of who held the majority in the House. Her warm personality, skill and ability to work with her colleagues brought funding and progress on key issues to benefit the environment, women’s rights, education, child care and community health centers.

Nita made history in Washington and was always present here in Westchester. Congratulations to Nita on her success in getting results for the needs of individual constituents and issues of importance to our nation.
