Last night was an important night for our country, from re-electing President Obama to sending men and women to the Senate who will work across the aisle, find common ground and end the partisan gridlock.
We did this because people like you worked for it and voted for it.
From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank you enough for the honor and privilege of continuing to fight for New York families in the U.S. Senate.
We have a lot of work to do. Our state is still in great crisis. Communities across New York, in New York City, Long Island and the Lower Hudson Valley, are still recovering. Even with unprecedented federal response, people are still hurting. Lives have been shattered. Homes destroyed.
We will rebuild. When we face down challenges, we always rise to them. It’s because we believe something both simple and profound: “We’re all in this together.”
Today we go back to work. And I know, because of you, we’re up for any task.
Thank you. Not just for being there for me, but for our friends and neighbors here in New York.
