Senator Gillibrand, Rep. Lowey and Rep. Maloney announce plan to maximize the Hudson Valley’s recreation, tourism, and economic development potential. I look forward to further working with Senator Gillibrand and others to grow our local economy and welcome these initiatives to Dutchess and Putnam Counties.
Senate floor update: I just rallied bipartisan support to push aside an unfunded mandate (S1486) on our schools that just came to the floor. I'm committed to working with anyone regardless of their political party to stop more needless and costly mandates on our schools.
I had a great time at the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce Breakfast of Champions this morning before heading up to Albany for session. It was nice to see so many community members and businesses come together.
Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park's ground breaking ceremony for their new elevator that will connect the Poughkeepsie Waterfront to the center of the Walkway. It is heartening to see the Walkway Over the Hudson continue to grow and have a positive impact on the City of Poughkeepsie and surrounding communities. This is another great step towards connecting our neighborhoods and business centers to spur our local economy and create jobs.
Thank you to the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity to sit down and talk with a really wonderful group of young people from Poughkeepsie High School. They had really great input and questions.
