(St. Albans, NY)- In a move to address the wide-spread taint of the foreclosure process Senator Malcolm A. Smith (D-St. Albans) has proposed legislation that enhances the efforts of Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman’s recent success in preliminary settlement recovery efforts. The State reached a settlement for $136 million with the nation's five largest mortgage services over foreclosure abuse.
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.
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.
