Newburgh, NY —Representative Sean Patrick Maloney will continue his “Speak with Sean” series by holding Neighborhood Office Hours in Newburgh TOMORROW, Saturday, June 20th from noon to 1:00pm at Newburgh Illuminated. Neighborhood Office Hours are an opportunity for constituents to share any questions, comments and concerns one-on-one with Rep. Maloney. In addition, Rep. Maloney’s staff will be available tomorrow from 11:00am until 4:00pm to assist with any problems constituents from the Hudson Valley may be having with a federal government agency, such as the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or the Veterans Administration. 

“I’m here to work for folks in the Hudson Valley, and our office is here to be their advocate and help cut through any bureaucratic red tape of the federal government,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “Too often people feel like no one is fighting for them, so I'm looking forward to meeting with my neighbors throughout the Hudson Valley to hear how we can better serve them.”

Representative Maloney’s office has handled more than 2,400 cases, and so far, Rep. Maloney has helped return more than $4.6 million to Hudson Valley taxpayers who were owed Social Security checks, veterans’ benefits, tax refunds and other payments from the federal government.

Mother. Leader. Neighbor.


As I explore the possibility of being your conservative Republican Assemblywoman, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. As a mom, an elected Councilwoman and a former small business owner, I know how hard it can be to raise a family, run a business and make things work in New York.


I have been blessed to live in Mahopac, NY, for over 50 years. I graduated from Mahopac High School and a few years later married the love of my life, Jimmy McDonough. Together, Jimmy and I owned and operated successful businesses in the Hudson Valley, started our family and have five amazing children.


Currently serving on the Carmel Town Board, I am pro life, pro second amendment and a solid fiscal conservative. Putnam and Westchester families deserve a respected conservative voice in Albany to watch out for our families, our communities and our state. And should I run and if honored to be elected, I look forward to being that voice.


Giving back to my community has always been an important part of my life.  While my children were young, I coached basketball and softball, was a den mother for the Boy Scouts, became the Director of the St. John's CYO basketball program and was a team leader for the Relay for Life.


In 2004 my life took a very unexpected turn.  My dad died in July and my husband was diagnosed with cancer and sadly passed seven months later in February of 2005. Despite these hardships, I was blessed to have my community, family and friends rally around my children and I, and because of that I became stronger than I ever have been.


Currently, I help run a non-profit organization that helps families deal with the diagnosis of cancer, I am a coach for the Special Olympics, continue to participate in the Relay for Life, provide scholarships to several Mahopac High School Seniors and, am a Town Board member in the Town of Carmel.


Now, everyday, I do as much as I can, help everyone I can and truly try to make a difference. While there is much about politics I do not like, the ability to make a difference in the lives of others is what I do love.


Over the next several months my goal is to meet as many of my neighbors in Putnam and Westchester Counties as possible. I want to hear from you, listen to you, and I will be going door to door to do exactly that.


There are no easy answers, but working together we can build opportunity for everyone. I look forward to meeting you in person.

A statement by Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C-Yorktown)
            “In a session marred by ethics scandals and arrests, the desire to pass a real, meaningful pension forfeiture amendment should have been at an all-time high. In fact, there was actual momentum on budget night as the Assembly Majority, Senate Majority, and Gov. Cuomo had reached an agreement as part of the budget negotiations. Sadly, the Assembly Majority pulled the amendment at the last minute, amended it, and watered it down. We have run out of time this session to pass this common-sense amendment because of the political gamesmanship in the Majority. New Yorkers shouldn’t be on the hook for the retirement of crooked politicians, and the legislative majorities shouldn’t turn their backs to protect a dangerous and expensive status quo. This will be a needless black mark on our chamber and on this session.”

Dear Neighbor,

During the Board of Legislators June 15th meeting, the much-anticipated vote to approve the management agreement between the County and Standard Amusements took place and passed unanimously.  

After being instrumental in dismantling the Sustainable Playland proposal, Democrats on the Board of Legislators felt that the public-private partnership needed to include commitments to undertake certain capital projects and protect employees to avoid layoffs as a result of this deal and they were successful in those efforts.

I’m proud that we were able to accomplish our goals to improve such a valuable asset right in our community and do it in a way that makes this gem primed for success for generations to come.  Here are some of the highlights of the new Playland Management agreement:
  • Standard Amusements will pay the county $2.25 million upfront, and then invest at least another $22 million in the first five years of a 15-year agreement. It will also pay annual escalating payments starting at $300,000 and cut the county in on 7.5 percent of the profits once it recoups its initial investment.
  • Westchester County will commit to the following capital improvements:
    • North Boardwalk (currently in design)
    • Colonnades
    • Lights on Playland Parkway
    • Playland Structural system
    • Fire Suppression System
    • Playland Pathway
The County Executive’s initial proposal to turn the park over to Sustainable Playland raised significant concerns for local residents and ultimately did not hold up to scrutiny from the Board of Legislators.  When the County Executive entered into the agreement with Standard Amusements, the Board of Legislators began their due diligence again and has significantly improved it from its original form by securing commitments about capital projects, size and scope of the park and employee protections.
Playland belongs to the people of Westchester.  Working together to infuse the park with needed capital we can restore this beautiful, iconic place to its historic glory and successful future.

ALBANY, NY - Yesterday the New York State Senate passed landmark legislation, advocated by Senator Terrence Murphy, to fight against sexual violence on college campuses by creating a uniform definition for affirmative consent. Supporters of the bill are applauding what they say is its comprehensive approach to help make every college and university campus throughout New York State more safe and secure.

"As a father of three kids I firmly believe we must take every precaution to protect our children from sexual violence and abuse," Senator Terrence Murphy said. "Earlier this year we passed milestone legislation to protect our children from sexual predators and yesterday's legislation aims to ensure our children at college are equally protected. I applaud the author, Senator Ken LaValle, for his commitment and continued work to ensure this important piece of legislation was passed."

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said, "Keeping our students safe is essential, and this bill succeeds in combating and rooting out sexual assualt so campuses remain safe learning environments. I thank Senator Ken LaValle for his work developing a comprehensive plan to protect all students, help victims, and provide resources that will enable colleges and universities to put an end to sexual violence on campus."

In 2014, the Senate Higher Education Committee convened a roundtable of advocates, legislators, college and university officials, and security personnel to examine sexual violence on college campuses. In October, the committee released a report, Sexual Violence on College Campuses; A New York State Perspective, that reviewed research, state and federal laws, and best practices and made recommendations for state legislative action, many of which are included in the bill passed today.

The Senators said the legislation was developed in concert with victim's rights advocates, law enforcement professionals, legal experts and higher education professionals. The law would help prevent sexual assaults and provide more support to victims by improving the ability of educational institutions to appropriately respond if a crime occurs.

The bill also provides $10 million in state funding to help implement these new measures by creating a new Sexual Assault Victims Unit within the Division of State Police ($4.5 million); supporting prevention, education and victim services provided on campuses by rape crisis centers ($4.5 million); and by supporting on-campus training, among other related expenses ($1 million).

"Earlier this year, Pace University students, faculty and staff worked collaboratively to promote awareness about sexual assault, enhance the safety of its campus community and provide critical services and support to those in need. These efforts included development of an updated campus-wide sexual assault policy; agreement on a revised definition of consent; launch of a sexual assault resources website; and creation of a Guide to Options, Resources, and Support," said Lisa Bardill Moscaritolo, associate vice president and dean for students, Westchester. "Pace University is proud to be among the many private, not-for-profit colleges and universities that worked with Senator Murphy, the Executive Chamber, and State Senate and Assembly leadership in developing legislation to best protect students and promote safe campuses across the state. Campus safety is everyone's concern and we remain fully committed to educating our faculty, students and staff about this important issue."

Other provisions of the bill include:
  • A statewide, uniform definition of affirmative consent to sexual activity, defined as "a knowing, voluntary and mutual decision among all participants to engage in sexual activity"; 
  • Amnesty for alcohol and/or drug use to encourage bystanders to report sexual assaults, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking without the risk of being charged with an alcohol or drug use violation of the institution's code of conduct; 
  • A Student's Bill of Rights, distributed annually to campus community, that includes the opportunity to report a sexual assault retaliation, and to access services and resources;
  • Requirements for institutions to notify students about the rights and resources available to them and how the institution will respond to reports of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking;
  • Options for confidential disclosure by requiring institutions to utilize plain language to notify students about the laws surrounding confidentiality and privacy, to list confidential and private resources that students can reach out to, and to provide technical information about how institutions will respond to requests for confidentiality. The bill allows privacy in legal challenges to conduct findings, absent a waiver or court determination; 
  • Year-round, ongoing campaigns to be developed and implemented by institutions about sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking education and prevention. The bill also directs institutions to conduct annual surveys to assess the campus climate and disclose the results without any personally identifying information; and 
  • Reporting of aggregate data to the State Education Department: Requires institutions to annually publish reports of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or sexual assault, including the total number of reports received, open and closed investigations, and penalties imposed on perpetrators.
"The unfortunate reality is that we live in dangerous times," Senator Murphy said. "New York State has a responsibility to provide the necessary resources to combat and educate people of these heinous acts which can have a long term devastating impact on young lives." 
The bill passed the Assembly last night and now awaits the Governor's approval.
