Dear Neighbor,

I have been an advocate for bringing greater transparency and accountability to state government since my first days in the Assembly. During this year’s legislative session I sponsored three major laws that brought meaningful reform to how Albany operates. In addition to these laws, I supported a resolution that changed internal Assembly rules, bringing more openness to legislative proceedings and making them more productive and efficient.

We accomplished a lot this last session, but there is always more we can do. I am looking forward to getting back to Albany in January to continue my efforts in making Westchester County, and New York, a better place to live.

“The governor and Legislature have worked together to pass significant reforms this year, but we need to go back to work and do more. I’ll keep pushing for more ways to make state government more open, efficient and accountable.”
