Please Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard and Vote on Tuesday or Via Early Voting this Weekend
This is an important election in Westchester, New York State and across the country. Please make sure your voice is heard and vote on Tuesday or via early voting this weekend.
My focus continues to be on providing tireless and effective service in addressing issues of importance to New York State, Westchester and every community I represent.
This fall I have been highlighting the value of the Environmental Bond Act proposal, which will be of great benefit to Westchester communities. The Bond Act includes funding for flood mitigation and coastal resilience projects, including a new stormwater grant program, which I proposed, that will help municipalities pay for essential infrastructure upgrades. Please remember to flip the ballot to vote on the bond issue which is on the other side of the ballot sheet.
Of great importance is support for our statewide candidates. I have known Kathy Hochul for over a decade. In her short time as Governor, she has supported key funding for education and the environment, strengthened our criminal justice statutes, and led the successful effort to attract high-tech chip manufacturing back to America with the world’s largest plant now coming to upstate New York. When Governor Hochul took office, she cut through red tape to expedite Covid-19 relief funding for small businesses and families. Please vote on Tuesday to support the Governor and Lt. Governor Antonio Delgado.
State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, Attorney General Tish James, Senator Chuck Schumer and Congressman Jamaal Bowman are in Westchester regularly despite their many responsibilities. They have all been partners on the issues I work on throughout the year.
Also on the ballot is State Senator Shelley Mayer who represents most of the Sound Shore in the Senate. Shelley and I work closely together on every imaginable issue affecting Westchester and on statewide issues affecting education, the environment and public safety. She is an exceptional legislator. Our partnership on countless issues has delivered results for the communities we serve.
I am running on the Democratic and Working Families Party lines as are the candidates discussed here. In NYS maintaining a party line on the ballot depends upon how many votes are cast for Governor or President each even-numbered year. Currently, there are four such parties in New York. Your vote for Kathy Hochul and Antonio Delgado on the WFP line will assure the party continues with a line along with the Democratic, Republican and Conservative lines on the ballot.
Thank you for your past support and your vote on November 8th . My goal is always to win results on issues we care about, to make a difference for the communities and families I represent and to break new ground on issues that require fresh thinking and new ideas. Thank you for the ideas and comments that enhance my advocacy. I look forward to continuing this work.
