    It has been my honor serving the Monroe-Woodbury community these past two years in the State Senate. As a MW Class of 2005 graduate and someone who has called Monroe-Woodbury “home” for most of my life, I thank the voters from the bottom of my heart for affording me that privilege.

    In the biggest fights Monroe-Woodbury has faced over the years, I’ve never shied away from being on the front lines. In the early days when few other elected officials were willing to stand up to and oppose an unjust annexation, I loudly and clearly said “not so fast” and worked tirelessly to make sure our community’s voice was heard.

    When it came to our school district, I strongly supported the now-successful effort to alter the district’s boundaries in order to preserve the integrity of our school board. Over my dead body will my alma mater, Monroe-Woodbury, turn into East Ramapo.

    I represented my hometown of Woodbury for six years in the State Assembly, and it has been my privilege to now serve the entire Monroe-Woodbury community as your State Senator.

    I’ve focused on repaving roads like Route 32 (Route 17M is next) as well as bringing back state funding - your tax dollars - for our local police, senior centers, and parks. I fought like hell for our communities, taking on the Governor, members of both parties - anyone - on our behalf. You deserve nothing less.

    I am asking you to kindly consider supporting me because of who I am, what I’ve done, and the fact that absolutely no one will fight harder for Monroe-Woodbury in Albany. I love our community and I am proud to represent everyone - Democrats, Republicans, and Independents - in the State Senate. I ask that you please continue to afford me that opportunity.

    James Skoufis
