This is the eulogy I gave for my dad, Abe, at his funeral. He was the quiet, strong glue that kept our family so close, the kind of person that keeps our society strong. He was a shining example of the Greatest Generation. We love him and will miss him.

Hate has no place in Nassau County, in New York, or across this country. I will keep working to fight racism and hatred.

The Neo-fascist Proud Boys marched through Rockville Centre today, close to my office. I think the latest elections emboldened them-I don’t remember this happening before. I will not be silent. Their hatred has no place here-this is not the Nassau I know. Who else will speak up?

My father Abe, 98, passed away this evening In so many ways—he personified the greatest generation. He took whatever was thrown at him no matter how difficult, did his job, never complained. An amazing husband, parent, grandparent, great-grandparent. We love him & will miss him.

This is a step forward in Ahmaud Arbery’s family receiving the justice they deserve. He should still be alive today. One single verdict in a single trial will never be enough.

Breaking News: Jurors found three white men — Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael and their neighbor William Bryan — guilty of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man who was out jogging. The three also face federal hate-crime charges.

I've long pushed for expanded US investment in electric vehicle infrastructure The infrastructure bill delivers over $12B to build out EV charging infrastructure & purchase electric transit, school buses—meaning more accessible EV chargers & less air pollution across NY & the US

Happy Birthday to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who was born on Thanksgiving in 1950. Odds are if you're near him this week, you'll hear the story. Here are videos ... 2008: 2017: 2020:

The Broadway Junction station will soon become more accessible for all to use, thanks to the infrastructure bill and a $15M RAISE grant I fought to deliver. I advocated for these upgrades so that New Yorkers with disabilities have the access to mass transit that they deserve.

New bike lanes on the Queensboro Bridge will make crossing the East River safer and change our city for the better! Funding in the fed infrastructure bill would not have been possible w/o the work of @TransAlt @ChuckSchumer #LosDeliveristas and tireless advocates

I have been riding my bike around New York City for a long time. And I’m so proud of the changes we’re about to make. With this infrastructure bill, we’re getting tens of millions in federal funds to expand our biking infrastructure! #BikeBoom

It’s a #BikeBoom! New York City is poised to land tens of millions in federal funds from our infrastructure bill to expand our biking infrastructure to help with bike lanes and jobs and climate and equality.

We are so fortunate to have @SenSchumer as our U.S. Senator and Majority Leader. I joined Senator Schumer, numerous colleagues and activists today to talk about his support for bike infrastructure funding and a safer, greener City. And he’s an avid cyclist himself!

Thank you @SenSchumer and all the advocates for making sure not only #QGTM, but that our entire city gets the infrastructure investments it needs to match our city’s #BikeBoom with the quality of our roads and bike lanes. I’ve got plans for you, Northern Boulevard 👀

The War on Drugs has been a war on people—particularly people of color. We must end the federal prohibition on marijuana and make criminal justice reforms—I’m working with @SenBooker and @RonWyden to pass our Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act to do just that.

Good news for families. I called for this to provide relief at the pump and signal to OPEC they can't manipulate supply to inflate gas prices. Of course—the only long term solution is to keep working to eliminate fossil fuel dependence and create a robust green energy economy.

I worked with @RepBowman to secure a nearly $12M RAISE Grant for New Rochelle. This will transform the unfinished Memorial Highway into open green space, reconnect the community to the downtown, and improve access to new job opportunities.
