Cellular Survey

Your Opinion is Important to Me.

As you know, reliable cell phone service in the Adirondack Park remains an urgent priority.

I’m committed to addressing this issue and have been working directly with the Adirondack Park Agency and state officials to improve service in our towns and on our highways.

Addressing this issue isn’t just a quality of life issue; it’s a matter of public safety. I’ve heard directly from first responders and county sheriffs that the majority of 911 and emergency calls are made from cell phones. With that in mind, acting on this issue simply cannot wait.

I’d like to hear from you on the issue of cell phone service in the Adirondack Park. Your input is valuable in ensuring not only that we address this, but that we do so in a way that best reflects the needs and desires of our communities. I will use your responses to this brief survey to advocate on your behalf and provide the answers and results you deserve.

If you have any further comment on this topic, or any other state issue, please do not hesitate to email me at stec@nysenate.gov. 

Thank you in advance for your participation!
