On February 28, 2011, Governor Cuomo signed into law legislation (A.3093B/S.3216), which will permit villages that administer their own elections to continue to use lever voting machines in the upcoming March elections. Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) co-sponsored the legislation in the Senate.
State Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) announced today that she will not seek re-election this November. The Senator made her decision upon recently learning that she will have to undergo major shoulder replacement surgery in 2012.
“It had always been my plan to seek re-election in November and continue to serve the people of this district. When considering my responsibilities as Senator, the extensive effort that will go into rehabilitation and physical therapy following my surgery, and the added work of the hard fought campaigns I always wage, it became clear to me that I could do only two of those three important tasks.
