Quality of Life Issues

Critical Funding

The New York Regional Interconnect project is an issue of vital importance to our area. My goal is to insure that communities such as ours which will be impacted by such a plan have an opportunity to have their voices heard AND CONSIDERED.

Accordingly, I lobbied for the allocation of funding to support CARI (Communities Against Regional Interconnect), which is fighting to keep the NYRI power line from ruining a portion of our district and possibly increasing electric rates in order to ship cheap electricity downstate.

In order to provide the village of Deposit with the opportunity to design and maintain an attractive gateway to their community, I facilitated an intermunicipal agreement between Broome County and the Village of Deposit.

The Deposit Rotary Club will provide the manpower and resources to both build and maintain the village's new "gateway."

I supported budgetary decisions that maintained crucial funding for entities that provide services important to the quality of life here in Broome County, such as

  • Cornell Cooperative Extension
  • Broome County Historical Society
  • the Cyber-Mobile
  • Broome County Soil and Water Conservation District, and
  • the Ross Park Zoo.
