Wrapping Up The Holidays, The Happy New Year Edition

Dear friends and neighbors,

I’d like to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. Please enjoy the holiday while being safe and responsible.

We have many wonderful communities in the 88th Assembly District and it’s up to all of us to keep them safe. So as you’re celebrating this week, please do so with your neighbors in mind. Be responsible while enjoying all the festivities our cities, towns and villages have to offer.

Here’s a closer look at some of the events that are taking place in the 88th. Have a good weekend and remember that if you have an event you’d like me to include in the coming weeks, send the information to Paulina@Assembly.State.NY.US.
