Activities:  Attended the County Board meeting, the Latinos Unidos 9th Annual Dinner and the Fall Fest with Assemblywoman Didi Barrett. Also attended the Metro-North Commuter Council monthly meeting via teleconference.  Responded to multiple calls and emails regarding various county, state and school issues affecting constituents in the district.


Bills:  Voted against the purchase of 503 Haight Avenue in Poughkeepsie.  The administration gave a good argument regarding the acquisition for the property.  However, concerns such as cost ($1.4 million), the impact to tax entities in the area, the increasing workload on our staff and pay to play matters resulted in my no vote.
