Dear friends and neighbors,
Winter’s grip finally seems to have taken hold and while the forecast is for a cold, potentially snowy weekend, don’t fret. There are a host of musical events taking place in the 88th Assembly District that will keep you inside while allowing you to stay warm and entertained.
In addition, the League of Women Voters of Westchester will be hosting a presentation about healthcare at the White Plains Library on Sunday. I will be one of the featured speakers at the event so please join us for the discussion. I look forward to seeing you there.
