It was an honor to serve a two year term as your State Senator, representing the 41st District, which includes Dutchess and Putnam Counties.
We introduced landmark legislation to reduce the cost of living and to create new jobs. We helped build new infrastructure and increased funding for our public schools. We helped Veterans and their families, senior citizens and students, and victims of Lyme disease, child abuse, drug addiction, and domestic violence. We aided those with developmental disabilities, and we even helped build a community playground.
I am incredibly proud of the work that my staff did in such a short period of time, especially assisting many thousands of constituents with the everyday issues facing them and their families. We took our jobs very seriously, and we did our best, every day, to make a difference in the lives of everyone in Dutchess and Putnam counties. We miss working for you and hope that we have another opportunity to serve you again in the future.
“Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one person can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills, misery, ignorance, and violence. Few will have the greatness to bend history, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. And in the total of all those acts will be written the history of a generation.”
Robert F. Kennedy
There is still much work to do and much to fight for. I hope to see you out there.
