Welcome Letter

Welcome to my New York State Assembly web page.

You can use this page to easily access information about the work I do both in Albany and at home to pass laws designed to build a stronger, healthier and more vibrant New York.

You can contact me with issues of concern, legislation you support or oppose, or ideas to help make our 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 Assembly District. 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.
