A 21st Century Vision
The new millennium was ushered in by a dramatic technological revolution. We now live in an increasingly diverse, globalized, and complex, media-saturated society. Today's kindergarteners will be retiring in the year 2067. We have no idea of what the world will look in five years, much less 60 years, yet we are charged with preparing our children for life in that world. Our families are facing many emerging issues such as record high unemployment, out of control property taxes, poverty, health issues, record high mortgage foreclosure rates and other environmental and social issues. These issues lead to a need for everyone to be able to communicate, function and create change personally, socially, economically and politically on local, state and national levels. We need leadership at all levels of government that are prepared for these challenges and are willing to make the tough decisions to help each other get past these challenges. For these reasons and more I am asking for your vote to represent you in the NY Senate.
