THE OTHER SHOE DROPS:
MORE DE BLASIO SUBPOENAS
 

NEW YORK, NY - The Senator who earlier this month called Mayor Bill de Blasio's fundraising apparatus part of a "statewide corruption scheme" reacted to news today over a fresh round of subpoenas issued to another upstate Democratic county committee. State Senator Terrence Murphy is now asking if Mayor de Blasio himself has been subpoenaed in any of the ongoing criminal investigations. 

"There is no one more independent than the United States Attorney who is acting on another independent report that Mayor de Blasio helped steer vast sums of cash from donors with pending city business with specific instructions to evade election law," Senator Murphy said. "Mayor de Blasio is at the center of all this and it is time to start asking if he has been personally served with a subpoena. Perhaps that is why he is no longer speaking to the press or reporters." 

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported today that the Monroe Democratic County Committee was subpoenaed by the Manhattan DA today over allegations mirroring what transpired in Putnam County in 2014, which are now at the center of various criminal inquiries.[1] In Putnam County, an independent investigation by the state board of elections enforcement counsel which found "willful and flagrant" violations of the election law that were referred for "criminal prosecution" to the Manhattan District Attorney. 

In addition to running an end around campaign contribution limits with money from pay-to-play donors, the coordinated effort led to the hiring of Mayor de Blasio's favored campaign consultants - several of whom were also employed by his nonprofits - who the Mayor now claims are "agents of the city" and not subject to Freedom of Information Law requests regarding their activities. These same political consultants, at least five of whom are already under subpoena in this investigation, also represent private interests with business before the city as lobbyists. 

"All the facts we have thus far indicate that the illicit donations were made to the county committees and earmarked for specific candidates in order to circumvent the contribution limits," Senator Murphy said. "Mayor de Blasio has no-one to blame but himself for all of the negative headlines, the perception of conflicts of interest and the inappropriate money laundering that took place in his failed bid to buy the New York State Senate."

NEWS FROM
SENATOR MURPHY

A MESSAGE FROM SENATOR MURPHY
Dear Friends,
 
Over the course of this coming weekend our great State and nation will observe its 150th Memorial Day.  This somber day pays tribute to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our nation and serves as a reminder that freedom is not free.
 
Leading up to this year's Memorial Day, I had the privilege of recognizing two local heroes who willing sacrificed their lives in the service of our nation.  In 2011, Spc. David Fahey Jr. was killed at the young age 23 while serving in Afghanistan.  In recognition of David's sacrifice I passed legislation to rename the Route 129 Bridge the Army Specialist David R. Fahey Memorial
Bridge.  Along with his family, friends and the entire Yorktown community, we unveiled its new name this past weekend, which will stand as a staunch reminder and beacon of freedom for all who travel it.
 
Also this week, the New York State Senate held its annual Veterans' Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.  On behalf of the 40th Senate District, I nominated Major Clayton Carpenter of Cortlandt Manor.  Major Carpenter, a graduate of the West Point Military Academy and a Iraq War Veteran, was killed in a helicopter accident while saving his crew members.  His actions and life deserve our enduring gratitude for his bravery and the leadership qualities he exemplified.

 
On this Memorial Day weekend I urge you to spend time reflecting on the sacrifices made by Spc. Fahey, Major Carpenter and the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate price on behalf of us.  Many of these brave souls we will never know but our gratitude should never diminish, our pride never dim and may we never forget that our freedom surely comes with an irreplaceable price.
 
Wishing you the best in health,

 
Terrence

Close to 65,000 people were without electricity in Northern Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties yesterday. Unfortunately, people did not hear from NYSEG about this and had to find out for themselves online.

In response to these inadequacies, I personally toured the Secor substation and met some great Utility Workers who were in the middle of restoring power.

I'm happy to report that up to 99% has been restored due to their expertise and hard work.

I also spoke to the superiors at NYSEG who assured me we will work together to improve communication protocols in the future. 

CARING FOR OUR SENIORS
 
Earlier this week I was thrilled to sponsor a free senior health fair in my hometown of Yorktown.  Partnering with AFC Urgent Care, we provided a number of free health screenings including BMI evaluations, blood pressure checks, blood sugar screenings and more.
 
I believe we should recognize the many contributions senior citizens have made to our community through the years by showing them the services that are available to them as they get older.  This resource fair helped connect seniors with organizations that can help them remain healthy and independent.
 
I'll be hosting another fair next month in Mahopac.  Still tuned for details!
EXPANDING NY'S MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
 
Earlier this week I joined Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in announcing a $100 million expansion of New York's Mortgage Assistance Program (MAP).
 
The expansion, funded by the April settlements with Goldman Sachs over the bank's deceptive practicies leading up to the financial crisis, is expected to help more than 3,000 families across the state pay off small debts that are preventing them from securing a needed mortgage modification.
 
KILLING NY'S TAMPON TAX
 
Earlier this week New York State gave final passage to legislation that would exempt many basic and necessary women's items from being unfairly taxed.  S7838, which I was proud to co-sponsor, would exempt feminine hygiene products such as sanitary napkins, panty liners, and yes, tampons, from New York's sales and compensating tax.
 
This is a common sense piece of legislation that sheds an archaic policy that unfairly targeted the women of our state.  I applaud my colleague Senator Sue Serino for authoring this important piece of legislation and am proud of our continued partnership to see it become law.  The Tampon Tax is dead and I urge the Governor to commence the funeral as soon as the bill hits his desk.
 
HOLDING THE MTA ACCOUNTABLE TO COMMUTERS
 
A two alarm fire under Metro North tracks in Harlem last week shut down service indefinitely with one northbound train stranded only five blocks from the fire.
 
In response, I have introduced new legislation calling for the MTA to review all structures and storage areas under elevated tracks, as well as a study of the MTA's notification system to perspective users.
 
Considering how many people were impacted due to these recent events, and how much money New York State continues to pour into the MTA, we need a full assessment of the structures and storage spaces under the MTA's elevated tracks to ensure there are no potentially dangerous concerns being overlooked. 
 
MORE DE BLASIO SUBPOENAS
 
There is no one more independent than the United States Attorney who is acting on another independent report that Mayor Bill de Blasio helped steer vast sums of cash from donors with pending city business with specific instructions to evade election law.

 
The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported today that the Monroe Democratic County Committee was subpoenaed by the Manhattan DA today over allegations mirroring what transpired in Putnam County in 2014, which are now at the center of various criminal inquiries.

 
All the facts we have thus far indicate that the illicit donations were made to the county committees and earmarked for specific candidates in order to circumvent the contribution limits. Mayor de Blasio has no-one to blame but himself for all of the negative headlines, the perception of conflicts of interest and the inappropriate money laundering that took place in his failed bid to buy the New York State Senate.

NEW EQUIPMENT FOR THE YORKTOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT
I joined Chief Jeff Slotoroff, Commissioner Martin McGannon and some of Yorktown's bravest men and women to examine the swiftwater rescue and anti-terrorist equipment purchased with grant funding I was able to secure.

YORKTOWN AGAINST HEROIN
Yorktown Councilman Tom Diana is doing a great shining a light on the heroin epidemic here at home.  I stopped by Yorktown Against Heroin's latest event that provided kids with a free self defense class!

AMERICAN HERITAGE DAY AT SOMERS MIDDLE SCHOOL
It was a great morning at the Somers Middle School to observe American Heritage Day.  Like fellow New Yorker Theodore Roosevelt said, "This is a nation, not a boarding house.  there is not room in this country for any 50-50 American, nor can be there be but one loyalty - to the Stars and Stripes."

Matthew Paterson Elementary Comes to Albany
The best meeting I had this week was hanging out with some great kids from Patterson's Matthew Paterson Elementary School.  What better place to hang out than on the Million Dollar Staircase?


The Most Interesting Man... In Albany
His shirts never wrinkle.  His business card simply says "I'll Call You."  He is the most interesting man in the world.  I don't always welcome movie stars who are Yorktown High School Graduates to Albany, but when I do, its Jonathan Goldsmith, the most interesting man in the world!
