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 the best it can be. 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.

Check back here regularly for updates and announcements! I also encourage you to sign up for my newsletter and find me on social media to stay informed about what I'm doing in Albany and around the community.
