What happens when a brainiac from New York’s North Country meets a beautiful gal from Taiwan? They fall in love, get married in his humble hometown of Adams and eventually start a business just outside Liverpool on the edge of Galeville.
When it comes to our kids’ education, I think we can all agree that every child deserves the opportunity to succeed. That’s why early special education programs — like the one offered at the Main Street School in North Syracuse — are so important.

A federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) has been awarded to the town of Cicero for installation of a playground at Skyway Park on East Taft Road.

As we mark the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about two important bills that would help to empower individuals with certain disabilities. Both of these bills that I sponsored passed the state senate and state assembly during the 2015 legislative session and await the governor’s consideration. I hope you will join me in urging Gov. Cuomo to sign these bills into state law.
Last week, U.S. Rep. John Katko, the freshman Republican congressman representing our 24th District, applauded the announcement that the U.S. Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin $153,947,182 for Block 2 of the Navy’s Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP).

For 11 long months, from February to December 2014, Dorianne Elitharp Gutierrez and Joyce M.

Summer reading is a great way to keep children academically sharp for the new school year. It can also be a fun and rewarding activity. That is why I am once again sponsoring the New York State Senate Summer Reading Program to encourage summer learning. The New York State Senate, in partnership with the New York State Library, offers this convenient online program, so families may enjoy the rewards of reading together.
