Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (2nd Senate District) was joined by the Senate Majority’s Long Island Delegation at a press conference at the Bethpage Train Station to announce their efforts to force the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to provide fare relief to the region’s long-suffering commuters.  The focus of the press conference was the delegation’s joint call for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to put any proposed 2019 fare hike on hold through at least 2021 until it makes measurable improvements in service, equipment failures and delays.

Young adult political power is growing, yet we tend to have the lowest voter turnout of any age group. We vote less than older demographics in presidential elections, and the gap is even greater in local and state elections. Despite the recent uptake in young adult activism and community service, we are still alienated from local government and civic engagement. State Senator Brian A. Benjamin is empowering a Young Adult Task Force of young professionals, activists, artists, students, and community leaders to close the gap.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville), Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner and Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen today were among the "guest servers" at the Saratoga County Office for Aging's 2018 Senior Luncheon held at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds in Ballston Spa.

Earlier this year, the Governor signed an egregious Executive Order pardoning cop killers, murderers, rapists, and other sex offenders so they could vote in our elections. At the time, I called it the worst public policy misstep of his administration. 

Now, Andrew Cuomo has made a bad policy even worse by concocting a scheme to allow sex offenders, under the cloak of darkness, to vote for him and other Democrats next Thursday.
