Senator Lee Zeldin Honors Dr. Martin Luther King

In honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I share the following quote from Dr. King's Lincoln Memorial Address on August 28, 1963:

"Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline."

I am very proud of all your support and proud to be your new State Senator. Let Dr. King's words inspire our efforts each and every day. Our cause may change with time, but Dr. King's words should never be forgotten.

Tough Times Require Cooperation

A New Year always brings new opportunity—and new challenges.

This year, New Yorkers face some of our biggest challenges ever: a state budget that is more than $10 billion in the red, a sluggish economy and slow job growth, and ever increasing demands for services that are paid for by taxpayers.

Earlier this month, our new Governor unveiled his vision for New York that was stark in its reality about the need to lower spending, reduce taxes, and change the way that government works. He brought that message directly to Northern and Central New York this week by hosting a local Town Hall meeting at Jefferson Community College.

Queens, NY, January 13, 2011 – NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. released the following statement on this week's City Council hearing on the administration's response to the December 26-27 blizzard:  

"I commend Speaker Quinn and Chairs Crowley, James, Vallone and Williams for their excellent work at the City Council Hearing on the December snowstorm.  I also appreciate the administration’s taking responsibility for not declaring a snow emergency on the morning of December 26, and I am hopeful that the administration will implement their new 15-point plan for any future storm that approaches us this winter.  I believe if a snow emergency is declared early enough, it will be the catalyst for their ability to respond appropriately."

 “New Yorkers have again watched a coward prey, rob and injure a honest, hard-working senior citizen, because criminals find seniors less able to defend themselves.
