Welcome Letter

Welcome to my New York State Assembly Web page.

Please note that beginning March 3, 2014, my district office has moved. The new address is 1446 East Gun Hill Road, Bronx, NY 10469. My telephone and fax numbers along with my email address have remained the same.

You can use this page to easily access information about the work I do both in Albany and at home to pass laws designed to build a stronger, healthier and more vibrant New York. You can also access the legislation I sponsor, the committees I sit on and contact information to reach me.

In addition, you can use the entire Assembly Web site as a great way to stay apprised of new legislation that impacts our state as well as the Assembly District. I encourage you to visit this site often to keep yourself up to date on various issues, news and legislative hearings. Thank You for visiting.
