Gov. Cuomo’s State of the State address presented an ambitious agenda for the upcoming legislative session, and many of the proposals present positive steps for Long Island. New York’s property taxes continue to rank among the highest in the nation, and I agree with the governor that addressing this issue is absolutely critical. I also look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure that our education system is righted after the disastrous implementation of the Common Core Curriculum. Our children and grandchildren are our future, and a quality education is a must if they are to be the leaders of tomorrow.
While I wait for the additional details that will come in the governor’s budget proposal, I remain confident that there will be many positive ideas we can use to build a stronger more prosperous New York.
