(O&R) to swap land in order to build an electric transition structure without disturbing the character of parkland in the town of Orangetown.

Reaching Out to Residents with Mobile Office Hours

As part of an ongoing effort to increase constituent outreach, I will be hosting mobile office hours throughout the district. During these mobile office hours I, or a staff member, will be available for residents to speak to regarding state-related matters.

These community mobile office hours make it easier for some local residents to discuss the issues that are important to them.  Convenient access to representatives is an important function of elected officials.
