Welcome Letter

Welcome to our New York State Assembly page for the 108th Assembly District.

Our hope is that this page can be a resource for you and your family to keep updated on what is happening in the NYS Assembly and how best to navigate state programs and systems. As a Cohoes native, I have a long history with our area and do my best to stay connected to the people who live here. I am honored to represent diverse citizens of the five cities, two towns, and three villages in the three counties that comprise this district.

I use this page to let you know my legislative priorities and the issues that the 108th district has shown me are important. Our common goal is to pass laws designed to build a stronger, healthier, and more vibrant New York. My focus is on what I know best: local government, healthcare, and small business; as well as working on the issues that affect households across our state including taxes, jobs, education, and healthcare.

Please feel free to contact my office by phone at 518-455-4474 or email me directly at with concerns, legislation you support or oppose, or ideas to help make our community stronger. This site is updated frequently, so please visit to keep yourself up to date on various issues, news and legislative hearings. Thank you for visiting!
