"I join all of New York City in mourning the senseless and horrific loss of Officer Miosotis Familia, who served and protected New Yorkers for 12 years. This tragedy serves as a stark reminder that our police officers put their lives on the line to protect us each and every day. My deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and colleagues in the 46th Precinct and the entire New York City Police Department."

Children in Saratoga and Schenectady Counties and across the greater Capital Region 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 16 area police departments to launch the 2017 Safe Summer Bike Helmet program.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the public safety program, Senator Tedisco today scooped free ice cream cones donated by Stewart’s Shops for kids at the Town of Malta’s summer camp.

Blue Mountain Lake, NY--Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) recently announced that he has secured $300,000 in state funding for the Adirondack Experience museum, which he helped cut the ribbon for its new “Life in the Adirondacks” exhibit in Blue Mountain Lake, New York in Hamilton County.

The grant that Tedisco obtained is through the state’s Economic Development Assistance Program and will be used to install a handicap accessible elevator at the museum.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I, REF-Glenville) honored several good Samaritans with citations at the New York State Capitol today who came to the rescue of a 14-year-old girl who fell from the Sky Ride at Six Flags Great Escape this past Saturday. 

Matthew Howard, Sr., of Schenectady and his daughter, Leeann Winchell positioned themselves underneath the young girl who was hanging from the ride 25 feet up in the air and successfully caught her without anyone being seriously injured.  Also assisting in the rescue was Loren Lent from Glenville who assisted on the ground.

Today’s MTA derailment is proof positive that we need to seriously reassess our transit priorities. Funding sweeps and cuts that I have opposed cannot continue. What has been a nuisance, costing New Yorkers time and money, is now a threat to the well-being of riders. The escalation of delays and system failures is nothing short of a state of emergency.
