Community Update: Historic EMS Victory, Legislation Passing, In the Community

Sen. Shelley Mayer

February 21, 2023

Dear Friends, 

As we find ourselves in the middle of February, we reflect on weeks filled with historic legislative progress, a busy schedule in Albany, and activity in our district.

February is Black History Month, and I look forward to a joint celebration with Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on Wednesday February 22nd at 6 pm. Details are below. On social media this month, I’m highlighting some of the less well-known Black Westchester residents who helped shape our county. You can follow these important discussions on my social media pages at @shelleybmayer on Twitter and Instagram, and @ShelleyMayerSD37 on Facebook.

Over the past two weeks, the Senate and Assembly have conducted multiple public hearings on the Governor’s Proposed Budget. I was pleased to participate in several so far, including the Education Hearing, the Judiciary Hearing, and the Local & General Government Hearing. More are scheduled, and you can watch them HERE.

As always, if there is anything my office can assist you with, please email me at or call (914) 934-5250.

Warm regards,

Shelley B. Mayer
State Senator
37th District
