I'm honored to have been named Chair of the NY Senate Agriculture Committee. Farms and agricultural businesses are a vital part of our economy and our beautiful region, and I'm committed to helping them thrive. These primarily small family businesses have to work against an industry and regulatory framework that advantages big agriculture interests. In this and every other area, I will fight to level the playing field for families and small businesses in New York.

Many river communities in the Delaware River watershed are directly threatened by fracking pollution and its health and environmental impacts.

I stand with NRDC, Food & Water Watch, Catskill Mountainkeeper, State Senator Liz Krueger, and Senator Brad Hoylman in calling for a complete ban on all fracking-related activity by the Delaware River Basin Commission. No storage, no processing, no discharge of frack wastewater, and no use of fresh water from the Basin for fracking elsewhere.

It was a packed room in Tuxedo this morning, for a great conversation about legislative priorities for our region, and how local and state government can work together. It was wonderful to see so many people engaged and participating with our government.

Thank you so much to all of the local officals who participated. Special thanks to Ken and Michelle for organizing the conversation, and Maria for the photos!

I'd like to say a special thank you to Lamuel, Yola, and all of the other USPS workers who had to deal with endless amounts of election-related mail and then transition right into the happier--but even busier--work of handling holiday cards and packages. Just a few more weeks of busy season!

Rachel, who is in 9th grade, came up on stage after the Hanukkah event last night to say hi. It's so wonderful, and hopeful, to meet young people who are interested in the future of their community and the world around them. It was a real pleasure to meet you, Rachel!
