Universal vote-by-mail:
• Eliminates obstacles to voting, like having to take time off work
• Gives voters time to examine the ballot and research candidates and initiatives
• Increases turnout significantly, especially among younger adults
• Saves a *lot* of taxpayer money

Let's do this, New York!

We ask so much of those who serve our country in the armed forces. I would like to extend my respectful gratitude to all who serve and all who have served, including my Dad, who was stationed in Germany in the 1950s. He and his fellow soldiers were prepared for a Soviet invasion and the start of World War III at any moment.

When veterans complete their service, it is literally the least we can to do spare time in our thoughts to respect their commitment and sacrifice. I would like to encourage us to do even more. Veterans, especially younger veterans, are far more likely to be unemployed than non-veterans. Our economy is changing rapidly, military vocational services are often out of date, and some employers are hesitant to hire veterans. I'll do my part in Albany to help, by prioritizing modern vocational support and better outreach to employers. If you are a business owner or otherwise in a position to help, please do your part as well.

Anxiety, happiness, and exhaustion, in no particular order. I can never thank all of you enough.

We did it. We won!

But we couldn't have done it without you. I'm humbled by the incredible grassroots support from so many people across our district. We are ready for a government that fights for our health, our education, and our planet. I feel so honored to get to serve you as your next NY State Senator.

Thank you all so much.
