On Tuesday, Nov. 30, a festive program on Farmingdale’s Village Green featured the holiday lighting of the Tri-centennial Tree. This blue spruce tree was planted following the Tri-centennial of Settlement commemoration of 1987, which noted the community’s 300th year since the arrival of first settler Thomas Powell in 1687.

I want to thank the residents of the 10th Assembly District for giving me another two-year term as your State Assemblyman in Albany. As I begin my new term, I am energized, once again, to push for a reform agenda that includes property tax relief, spending restraint and strict ethical adherence for legislators.
