2020 Survey
This annual survey helps provide meaningful and useful snapshots of what’s on the minds of area residents paying attention to state government and willing to give some thought to the choices being debated and decided at the Capitol.

Elmira, N.Y., January 10—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R,C,I-Big Flats) has launched an online “2020 Community and Legislative Survey” inviting area residents to share their views on a range of regional and statewide issues.

O’Mara unveiled his 2020 survey following Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 10th annual State of the State message earlier this week, the traditional kickoff to a new session of the State Legislature.

“This annual online survey provides another avenue to encourage local input on a number of the key challenges and concerns facing our region and the state as a whole in 2020.  I’m always grateful for the input,” said O’Mara, whose 58th Senate District includes all of Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and part of Tompkins County (the city of Ithaca, and the towns of Enfield, Ithaca, Newfield, and Ulysses).

O’Mara has offered the survey annually to constituents since first being elected to the Senate.  It offers an opportunity for local residents to share their own views and suggestions on private-sector job creation, government reform, state fiscal policies including taxes and spending, mandate relief, education, public safety, transportation, health care, and additional issues including the state’s controversial new “bail reform” law. 

“This annual survey helps provide meaningful and useful snapshots of what’s on the minds of area residents paying attention to state government and willing to give some thought to the choices being debated and decided at the Capitol,” said O’Mara.
