I was born and raised here in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. It’s where I went to high school. It's where I returned to and settled after law school. It's where I got married and it's where my wife and I are raising our daughter Samantha. We wouldn’t raise our family anywhere else.
But the opportunities once afforded to middle class families in the Hudson Valley have been declining and the dysfunction in our state government has put politics over people. Albany politicians have failed to make the needed investments in jobs, education and infrastructure necessary to fuel an economic resurgence in New York. I believe we need change in state government.
I’m running for the State Senate because it's time to stand up for the middle class and focus on creating jobs and reforming government. I am running to ensure the Hudson Valley remains the best place in the world to live and raise a family for generations to come.
