Like so many other families across our state and nation, my family gathered together this Thanksgiving to celebrate and give thanks for all the blessings and gifts we have enjoyed over the past year.
I feel so very fortunate to have three beautiful children, a loving wife, a tight-knit family and parents who taught me the value of hard work and community service. I am also grateful for all of the support I’ve received throughout Western New York over the course of my first term in the State Senate. Thank you.
As the Holiday season continues, I look forward to more time spent with my family, and I wish you and your family many more happy, fulfilling and relaxing days together.
