As our nation approaches the Thanksgiving holiday, my office and I would like to wish you and your family all the best. While this past month has presented our entire community with numerous challenges, the reality is that we are a strong state and nation that will work together to rebuild and recover. Most importantly, I hope that you and your family are safe and that you can enjoy some time together in the coming days and months.
I would also like to express my deep appreciation for all the men and women who worked so hard to help our community get through Hurricane Sandy. Our first responders and emergency personnel, along with the workers and neighbors who got our community moving again after such an event, are to be commended for leaving their families to help those in need. They performed admirably and I thank them on behalf of our community.
As always, if you or your family needs any assistance, please feel free to contact me at your convenience by replying to this e-mail. My web site (flanagan.nysenate.gov) currently has a section that contains information regarding storm related issues that you can access by clicking here.
Thank you very much for your time and please have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
P.S. With this upcoming weekend serving as the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season, I wanted to inform you about two sections on my web site (flanagan.nysenate.gov) that are designed to make the upcoming holidays safe and enjoyable.
