It has been five years since I was first sworn into office to serve as your representative in Suffolk County’s Fifth District, a beautiful place with its own unique attributes and needs. Together we have risen to challenges and fought for what we believe is right. Together we have faced the fury of nature and started to ignite a languishing economy. Together we have celebrated triumphs of human spirit and cheered on the smaller, daily victories that unite us all. Together we have worked to set the course of Suffolk County right again.

We have been successful on many fronts, but there is still more work to be done. As the Legislature’s new Majority Leader in 2016, I look forward to using this new avenue to effect change and unite my colleagues on important matters. I am proud of what my fellow legislators and I have accomplished so far and remain excited by the opportunities in each day.

As always, however, you remain critical to my role, for it is you who keeps me here fighting for our future. The vision you and I share for our destiny is what motivates me as a public servant. The disappointments that come from the slow pace of change that seems to be built into governmental operations are far outweighed by the sense of hope that I get from our continued partnership toward making our community the best it can be. As always, please contact my office to share ideas or discuss issues of concern. I am here to help.

Best wishes,

Suffolk County Legislator

Fifth District
