We look forward to continuing to work with the Assemblyman to put New York on the path to economic revitalization,”

Dr. Steve Katz currently serves the 99th Assembly district and is running for reelection to this seat, which has been redistricted as the 94th. Small business owners and their families are an essential element of the electorate.
