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
