Jade Alert

Assemblyman Magnarelli knows how important it is to help the families of vulnerable adults. That’s why he introduced legislation to aid in the recovery of those individuals should they go missing (A.5220-A). Similar to the Amber Alert system, a “Jade Alert” would require a response within 24 hours of any senior citizen or at-risk adult being identified and reported as missing, and make federal, state and local law enforcement resources available to aid in their recovery.


Assemblyman Magnarelli has worked hard to provide Central New Yorkers with access to quality, affordable health care by securing needed funding for local health care providers, including:

“Protecting the health of our families, friends and neighbors is important. I will continue to defend and fight to expand the vital health care services Central New Yorkers depend on.”
