Some Final Thoughts

It has been an enormous privilege over the past six years that I’ve represented this region in the New York State Senate to have the opportunity, through this website, to now and then express a few thoughts, share a few opinions, and offer my own perspective on so many of the key issues of the day.

But as many of you know, I’m winding down 32 years as a New York State legislator.  I’ll be retiring at the end of this week.  So this will be my final web column.  For those of you who have faithfully read these words, and then perhaps seen fit to send me a few thoughts of your own (which, by the way, many of you have), I simply want to say thank you.
