I always look forward to District Work Periods because they give me time to spend more than just a weekend back here in NY, which means I have more time to connect with each of you, the constituents of NY-12.
It was another busy week in Washington, DC and I wanted to share some highlights with you.
This week, as Vice Chair of the Joint Economic Committee, I released a report detailing the economic costs of gun violence and held a hearing with expert witnesses who spoke on what we need to do to end this epidemic.
From tackling local issues to fighting for all Americans at the federal level, I am committed to working #ForThePeople and this week I had the opportunity to meet and work with many of you in our fight to make our city and our country safer, cleaner, and more equitable for all.
Advocating to #EndGunViolence
As a nation, we are all still processing and grieving the tragic mass shootings that occurred over the weekend, as well as the latest of Trump’s cruel immigration policies. This week, I spent time with community leaders and spoke with many of you about what can be done in Washington to make our communities safer.
