Welcome Letter

Welcome to my New York State Assembly page!

With so many exciting things happening both in Albany and at home, it’s important to have a place online where you can find out what projects and legislation I am currently working on. Transparency and open communication are important to me, so I hope you will visit often.

I update this page regularly to make sure you can always find the information you need, including contact information for both my district and Albany offices, news about legislation I have sponsored and laws I have passed, my voting records, and my committee work.

In addition, the entire Assembly site is available to you as you monitor the issues that matter most. I encourage you to use this tool to stay informed and to get involved in the legislative process.

It is truly an honor to serve you, and I hope you will find the information here useful. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, I invite you to stop by my office or to give me a call. My door is always open.


Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther


Assemblywoman  Aileen M. Gunther

Aileen Gunther was elected to the New York State Assembly in 2003 after the untimely death of her husband, Jake. Aileen spent most of her youth in Orange County. After marrying Jake, they decided to raise their three children in Sullivan County.

Aileen received her nursing degree, and spent many years working at Catskill Regional Medical Center. After working in various nursing units, she accepted the Infection Control position before moving on to become the Director of Performance Improvement and Risk Management.

Aileen is a fierce advocate for the people she represents. She fights for increased funding for our schools, fire departments, and access to health care for all New Yorkers. Aileen worked with Governor Cuomo to lower middle class taxes, close a $15 billion deficit, and to reduce state spending. In 2011, Aileen helped pass much needed ethics reform to restore public trust in state government.

For these reasons, Aileen was voted the best politician in the area by The River Reporter. Aileen continues to fight for her constituents, and will work to ensure that the Sullivan and Orange county area remains a great place to call home.
