Don has proven to be a true advocate for our region over these last months — using his expertise in environmental law to better educate everyone tuned into this primary.

I spoke with Don shortly after he announced his exit and I look forward to continuing that conversation in the coming days. I also look forward to his campaign for New York State Assembly in the 107th District, as I know he would be a powerful voice in the State House for the people of his district.

I hope to get together with Don again soon, and break out our guitar and fiddle, playing the folk tunes we so love.
