Welcome Letter

Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Assembly website and learning more about my work on behalf of Orange and Rockland Counties. Having grown up in the Hudson Valley and served in local government, I know how important it is to be available to constituents 24/7 and willing to help with any question or problem – big or small. Do not hesitate to contact me or my office at any time about any issue by calling 845-469-6929 or emailing skoufisj@assembly.state.ny.us.

You can also use this website to stay apprised of relevant legislation to the district as well as bills that I'm sponsoring and supporting. When I'm not in Albany, I keep a busy schedule meeting and working with constituents, community groups, and local elected officials – you can find out about upcoming events, such as Skoufis on Your Street, or request a meeting through this site as well.

Again, thank you for visiting and thank you for affording me the privilege to serve you.

James Skoufis
