Welcome to my governmental home page. If you’re looking for my weekly newsletter, please click here.

On this page, you’ll find information on my work representing the 6th Council District on New York’s City Council since January 3, 2022, when I was sworn in and appointed by Council Speaker Adrienne Adams to chair the Committee on Oversight and Investigations.

I also serve on the Council’s committees on Consumer and Worker Protection; Finance; Governmental Operations; Higher Education; and Rules, Privileges, and Elections. I’m a member of the Council’s Women’s Caucus. 

Visit my Legislation page to read about what we have accomplished so far this term, including:

  • Int. 656 requires the FDNY, in consultation with the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP), to develop an information campaign to educate the public on the fire risks posed by powered mobility devices such as e-bikes and electric scooters. The campaign would be required to include guidance on how to identify safe products, as well as best practices for maintenance, storage, and charging. 
  • Int. 752 restricts the assembly and reconditioning of lithium-ion batteries with cells removed from used batteries, and their commercial sale.
