View the report

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-REF-Glenville) presents Malta Town Supervisor Vincent DeLucia a New York State Senate Proclamation designating Malta as a Purple Heart Town in commemoration of  Purple Heart Day in Malta. The event honors the men and women who have been wounded or killed in action.

Our senior citizens made our neighborhoods the wonderful places they are today, so we owe it to them to provide support to help improve their lives. Therefore, I'm proud to present this Senior ResourceGuide for residents of the 27th Senate District of New York. This guide will help seniors identify important benefits, services and information available right here in the community so that their physical, social and economic needs are met. A downloadable copy of the resource guide is available here and above.

“This morning, myself and Glenville Town Supervisor Chris Koetzle visited Glenville Police Officer Ben Ferretti at Albany Medical Center. Officer Ferretti’s mom and dad were there with several of his fellow officers. He was sitting up in a chair and really looking great and conversing with all of us.”

“No vital organs were struck by the bullet that just missed his spine.  He said he will need up to six months of rehabilitation and looks forward to getting back to work when he is healed. Officer Ferretti and his family are thankful for everyone’s prayers and well-wishes.” 

“It should never happen that the dedicated and courageous men and women who protect our well-being are injured or killed in the line of duty but now it is happening all too frequently. We must stand with and support our law enforcement officials and continue to provide the resources they need to uphold the law, keep the public safe -- and keep our Thin Blue Line safe from harm. My deepest prayers and thoughts for healing as well as thanks for the Glenville Police officer’s bravery goes out to him and his family.”

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today announced the Village of Broadalbin has received a $100,000 state grant for the purchase of three new vehicles to plow and maintain the roads and sidewalks in the Village.

Tedisco visited the Village offices to meet with Mayor Lawrence Cornell and local officials and take a look at the new vehicles which include a pick-up truck plow, tractor and backhoe. 

Children in Fulton, Hamilton and Herkimer Counties and across the 49th New York State Senate District will have an added incentive to stay safe this summer as Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) is partnering with local officials and businesses and 17 area police departments to launch the 2017 Safe Summer Bike Helmet program.

State Senator John A. DeFrancisco will host his 13th annual Senior Fair on Tuesday, September 19th, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Horticulture Building at the New York State Fairgrounds. 

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville), a member of the New York State Senate Committee on Crime Victims, Crime and Correction, today brought Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R,C,I-Elma), Chair of the Committee, to tour Hale Creek Correctional Facility in Johnstown.  The tour was the first visit to the facility by both Tedisco and Gallivan.

The purpose of the visit was for Senator Tedisco and Senator Gallivan to meet with and hear from our corrections officers on the work conditions these law enforcement professionals face on a daily basis at the medium security state prison.
