No doubt, these are trying times for New York. Those who celebrate Passover & Easter are preparing in new ways. Some families won’t be together, and many religious services will be virtual. My own family is figuring out how to do our usual Easter Sunday dinner together remotely.
It is critical that all New Yorkers continue to be vigilant in staying home, protecting themselves, and looking out for their community. To those who may be facing economic hardship or health issues from this crisis: You are not alone. Together, we will get through this.
I want to express my immense gratitude to all of the nurses, doctors, paramedics, firefighters, pharmacists, teamsters, and all of the people who are delivering food & packages and stocking shelves to keep our communities running. Thank you for putting yourself at risk to keep us safe.
Over the last few weeks I’ve been consumed with the wellbeing of District 34 and New York State, working to ensure they get the medical supplies, food, and economic support that we need. I’ve held town halls for small businesses in the district and my team has been contacting seniors for safety checks.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or need assistance, my team and I are here for you.
Chag Pesach Sameach & Buona Pasqua.
