It’s Christmastime, and Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) helped stuff a Fulton County Ambulance full of donated toys at the Fulton Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare as part of the Salvation Army’s Holiday Toy Drive.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to use his constitutional power to issue a pardon in order to help save the life of Luna, a 6-year-old Troy dog that has galvanized the Capital Region, and enable her to go home for the holidays!

On Dec. 11, incoming Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins announced the chairs of committees and subcommittees for the 2019-20 New York State Senate legislative session. Among the 38 senators appointed was Senator Persaud; formerly a Ranking Member of the Social Services Committee, she will now become Chair of the said committee.

On Dec. 7, Governor Cuomo signed Bill 8821-2018, which would ensure access to feminine hygiene products for incarcerated women in correctional facilities across New York State, free of charge. Previously, female inmates would often run out of their allotted monthly supply and had no choice but to purchase more from the prison commissary. However, if such products were not affordable, they had no alternative but to go without or create their own makeshift versions. Both routes involved unsanitary conditions, which could lead to physical and mental health issues.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) celebrated the expansion of C.G. Roxane in Johnstown and its partnership with the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce. C.G. Roxane bottles Crystal Geyser water and for Wegmans, among others.  

"Our great small businesses, like C.G. Roxane in Johnstown are the beating heart of our local economy. C.G. Roxane is a true American success story and it's continued expansion means more investment here in Fulton County and in the 49th Senate District in jobs and our economy," said Senator Tedisco.
