Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said, “I’m proud to welcome Senator-elect Elijah Reichlin-Melnick to the New York State Senate. It’s exciting when someone who is already part of our State Senate family takes that big step to join us on the floor as an elected Senator. Elijah will be a strong voice for our environment, rebuilding our economy, and investing in our infrastructure to improve the system for hard-working commuters. Senator-Elect Reichlin-Melnick is part of an exciting new generation of leaders in the Senate Democratic Majority who will help move New York forward.”

Senator-Elect Elijah Reichlin-Melnick said, “It is the honor of my life to have the opportunity to represent the people of Rockland and Westchester Counties in the New York State Senate. I’m incredibly grateful to the voters of the 38th District who spoke loudly and clearly that they want to make New York work for everyone, not just the wealthy and the well-connected. We have a lot of work to do, and I look forward to going to Albany to fight for the middle class and working people of our district.”
