On January 25, 2010, I attended The Homeland Security Business Roundtable, sponsored by Senator Adams. This discussion focused on the level of disaster preparedness in our communities and industries, and ways to ensure that we have a quick and efficient response should a disaster strike. Thank you to Senator Adams and his staff for organizing this roundtable discussion.
Senator Vincent L. Leibell and Assemblyman Marcus Molinaro secured funding for the Astor Early Childhood Center which has branches throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley and provides programs for young children with behavioral and emotional problems.
This funding will enable the Millerton branch to make necessary safety improvements to its facility. Additionally, observation mirrors will be installed in the classrooms so that parents may watch their children without distracting them.
