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 here in the New York State Assembly’s 109th District for the City of Albany and Towns of Bethlehem, Guilderland, and New Scotland to pass laws designed to build a more vibrant New York and Capital Region.

You can contact me with issues of concern, legislation you support or oppose, or ideas to help make our communities stronger, healthier and safer.

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.

I encourage you to visit this site regularly or follow me on social media to keep yourself up to date on various issues, news and legislative hearings. Thank you for visiting.
