Welcome Letter

Welcome to our website!

My staff and I work hard every day to make our State government more effective and more responsive to the needs of all New Yorkers, and to provide the highest quality of service and advocacy for the people we represent in the Lower East Side, Stuyvesant Town, Peter Cooper Village, Union Square, Gramercy, East Midtown Plaza, Waterside Plaza, Kips Bay, Murray Hill, and Tudor City.

This website will help keep you informed about our work and about events and issues of concern in our community and around the state. Here, you can easily access recent news, legislation we’re working on, activities of the Assembly Committees I serve on, and other information.

If you live in our community and you have a problem we can assist you with, or if you have questions, comments, or concerns about government services, community issues, or matters before the legislature,we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for visiting!
