Every New York resident deserves safe, affordable childcare, and the resources they need to support their families.

As a mother, I applaud Governor Cuomo’s recent announcement about the expansion of New York State’s Child Care Assistance program.

As your New York State Senator, I will focus on expanding this assistance to include benefits to our Suffolk County communities.

As the mother of a toddler, I recognize the need for safe, quality childcare. I join in the struggle of the parents of my daughter’s peers to find affordable options for quality care for their infants and toddlers.

As your New York State Senator, I will propose tax credits for businesses that allow their employees the option of telecommuting to mitigate childcare emergencies. I will explore options for childcare facilities in unused spaces in municipal buildings.
