Dear Friends:

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

As you know, the new year will bring major changes for me personally as my tenure in the State Senate will end on December 31st. 

It has been a tremendous honor to represent the people of Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Saratoga and Schenectady counties over the years. 

I continue to be very blessed and humbled by all the support, kindness and assistance I’ve received from people and organizations throughout the region.
