I am pleased to welcome John Ceretto as the newest member of the Assembly Majority Conference. Like the members of our conference, John is committed to working families and helping people climb the ladder of economic opportunity. I have spent the summer traveling throughout upstate New York and learning about the needs of the communities I have visited, and I am excited that Assemblyman Ceretto will be bringing his views and experiences as a lifelong resident of Western New York to the Majority Conference. So many of his values are in step with our core issues, including improving education, ensuring equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, and ensuring access to quality health care. Assemblyman Ceretto will be a great addition to our already diverse conference and I look forward to working with him to help move our state forward.
