He said of his Assembly candidacy, "I will be able to fill the role, I will be able to fill the seat and I will do things that Staten Islanders will be very proud that they voted for Joe Tirone."
...and long-term solutions to improve the Lancaster Metrolink Station and the particular challenges we face," said Lancaster Mayor R Rex Parris. "We now have a shared understanding which each entity will work diligently to uphold and advance for the greater good of our community."
"With what we believe is the first UL certification of a flow battery, we are now able to singly pursue much of the behind-the-meter market which requires certification for permitting, insurance and finance" he said
Assemblyman Kim said, "I'm very proud to continue the hard work and advocacy of Congressmember Meng in the Assembly. When she served in the state legislature she was a tireless fighter for this community, and for the last two years, I have continued that fight in Albany on behalf of our constituents. As a member of the Corporations, Authorities, and Commissions Committee that oversees the MTA, I will stay on top of the rehabilitation efforts of the LIRR station on Main Street. This is a project that hundreds of my constituents, particularly senior citizens, have asked for years and we hope to see the completion soon."
