Women's History in the Hudson Valley
Important Information for Veterans

Dear Neighbor,

Welcome to my New York State Assembly website.

You can use this page to easily access information about the work I do both in Albany and at home in the Mid-Hudson Valley to help build a stronger, healthier and more vibrant New York.

I am honored to be representing the hardworking people of our region and remain committed to helping the middle-class by working to lower the tax burden on families and fighting to create good paying jobs which will provide a boost to our economy.

I look forward to hearing about your issues of concern, legislation you support or oppose, and your ideas to help make our beautiful and diverse community stronger, healthier and safer.

In addition, you can use the entire Assembly Web site as a great way to stay apprised of new legislation that impacts our state as well as the Mid-Hudson Valley. I encourage you to visit this site often to keep yourself up to date on various issues, news and legislative hearings. Thank you for visiting.
