Even with his years of experience working on the inside and outside of Albany and New York City politics, he always shows up to the halls of power with the strength and courage of our members and communities front and center. I’m so excited to see him continue to shape the direction of this organization in his new role as we build a people-powered movement across New York State,” said Ivette Alfonso, Citizen Action of New York’s President.
