We cannot build a 21st century economy without investing in research, innovation, education and infrastructure. Smart investments will increase our competitiveness in a global economy and help create jobs both now and in the future. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I am in a unique position to support local infrastructure projects in New York that will create jobs, grow our economy, and benefit Hudson Valley small businesses.

I look forward to hearing from you.
