Assemblywoman Sandy Galef represents the 95th District of the New York Assembly, which includes the Westchester municipalities of Cortlandt, Ossining and Peekskill, and the Putnam municipalities of Philipstown, Cold Spring and Kent.
To the Editor:
We keep learning about some elected officials and employees in state government that have abused their position and now face the justice system. It makes me cringe with disappointment and anger every time this happens.
But there is an elected official in our state government that upholds high ethical standards and is an example for others to emulate. That is Assemblywoman Sandy Galef.
Throughout her many years in office, Galef has followed certain principles that are admired by her governmental colleagues and those she represents in her Assembly district. From her first day in state office, she started the process of seeking reforms in the power structure, legislative transparency and ethics policies.
Galef continues to advocate for these changes so that abuses in government will stop and state government will gain back respect from the public.
We are fortunate to have Sandy Galef in the New York state legislature and I encourage everyone in the 95th Assembly District to vote for her on Election Day.
Sincerely, Anne E. Impellizzeri
