Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) currently represents 38th District in the New York State Senate. This encompasses the Towns of Ramapo, Clarkstown and Orangetown in Rockland County along with the Town of Ossining in Westchester County. In just a short period of time, the Senator has distinguished himself as an influential legislator with a reputation of getting results and delivering for his constituents in the Hudson Valley.
Since coming to Albany in 2010, Senator Carlucci has brought a new approach to governing in the 21st century. He has worked with the Governor to promote fiscal discipline by passing three consecutive on-time budgets without raising taxes, passing the largest middle class tax cut in nearly 60 years, implementing a property tax cap, and fighting to eliminate the job-killing MTA payroll tax. He has also pushed legislation to create jobs and grow our economy. This includes Jobs for Heroes, providing tax credits to businesses that hire returning veterans serving overseas, including his work to reduce burdensome regulations and promote entrepreneurism.
The Senator also has played an instrumental role in standing up for progressive issues. This includes being an outspoken voice against hydrofracking in New York, fighting to protect a woman's right to choose, and being a key supporter of passing marriage equality in New York. As Chairman of the Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee, he also fought this past legislative session in restoring critical funding to the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWD) and the nonprofit service providers that assist our most vulnerable residents.
Senator Carlucci is married to Lauren Grossberg Carlucci, where they reside in the Town of Clarkstown, Rockland County. He and Lauren had their first child late last year and are excited to be new parents.
