A commitment to strengthening public education is one of the fundamental reasons I am running for State Senate.

I was able to change my own circumstances in life thanks to a good public education. But my boys went to three different schools in three years, as funding cuts forced our local schools to close and consolidate. Many people, especially seniors, simply can’t afford to pay another dollar in property taxes. This creates a vicious cycle, as it closes off opportunities for the next generation. Our local school districts can’t do anything about it. The state needs to pay its fair share.

It's our responsibility, and our great strength, as a society to provide everyone with the opportunity to realize their full potential.

I am honored to be endorsed by New York State United Teachers. There are thousands of NYSUT members in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, and I will always stand up with them to fight for public education.

Reason #20: To pass the Child Victims Act.

New York has one of the most restrictive statutes of limitations in the country for victims of child sexual abuse. The Child Victims Act would not only provide victims of child sexual abuse with the opportunity for justice, but also protect potential future victims of abusers. Sadly, the Child Victims Act has been blocked repeatedly in the NY State Senate.

The parade was canceled, and the rain was relentless, but we had fun under the tents at the Delaware County Fair. It was steamy under there! Thanks Kathleen Hayek, Carla Nordstrom, and everyone.

My brilliant and talented friend Julie Novak was kind enough to invite me on her No One Like You Radio Show and Podcast today. I love Julie and I loved talking to her about my own personal history, my family, our community, and our future. Thanks so much, Julie, you're the best!
