Messenger Post: New Yorkers deserve real reform

I recently shared my thoughts on the corruption issues plaguing Albany with the Messenger Post family of newspapers:

"I was elected to the New York State Senate last year, and I understand what the residents of Monroe and Ontario Counties expect of me. They trust that I will fight every day to reduce the burden of property taxes, revitalize our economy and encourage growth in emerging technologies to create the jobs of the future. This has been my focus since I took office, but when our Legislature is hit by scandal after scandal, and nearly nine in 10 New Yorkers think corruption is a major problem in our state, it’s difficult for government to work effectively."
