Dear Neighbor:

It is truly an honor serving as your voice in the State Senate. As your Senator, my top priority is making certain that your voice is heard on important issues of public policy that affect our 43rd Senate District and all of New York State.

I always want to hear from you and learn your opinions on issues such as tax relief, Common Core, fracking, casino gambling and other important issues. Please take a moment to answer each of the 10 questions in this legislative survey so I can learn your views on these topics, and contact me if I may ever be of assistance. My very best to you and your family for a wonderful holiday season and a safe, prosperous New Year filled with health and happiness!

New website -- www.HealthLawHelper.org -- helps answer your health care questions!

There is a new website (www.HealthLawHelper.org) that contains useful, accessible information for consumers with questions about the Affordable Care Act, or health care in general. The website was created by, and is sponsored by, Consumer Reports, a non-partisan, non-profit organization which has a well-deserved reputation for impartiality, honesty and accuracy – and should reassure www.HealthLawHelper.org visitors that the information is reliable.

Thanksgiving Essays and Contributions

Dear Participant,

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

The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important subjects and activities. 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.
