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 passage of laws to:

  • Int 752 prohibit (i) the assembly or reconditioning of a lithium-ion battery using cells removed from used storage batteries; and (ii) the sale of a lithium-ion battery that uses cells removed from used storage batteries. A person who violated the proposed local law would be subject to a civil penalty. The Fire Department would be required to engage in an outreach campaign to stores that repair powered mobility devices to inform such stores of the conduct prohibited by this law.
