Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. In our first year, we received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”
On behalf of the New York State Senate, I would like to offer my wholehearted congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.

“ I support the millionaire’s tax to provide relief for New York middle class families in these tough economic times. Going forward we have to ensure that any additional revenue generated goes to restoring cuts, not adding additional spending.
I’m also eager to get back to Albany to make sure we repeal the onerous, job-killing MTA payroll tax that is crushing our small businesses here in Rockland and Orange counties.
I look forward to working with Governor Cuomo to ensure that we make New York more affordable for homeowners while finding ways to grow our economy and create jobs."
