County Legislator and 41st state Senate District candidate Sue Serino (R,C,I- Hyde Park) today joined Republican candidate for Attorney General John Cahill and local officials to call for increased protection for victims of domestic violence.

This week The Business Council became the latest in a string of non-partisan groups focused on creating jobs and protecting taxpayers in the Hudson Valley to give state Sen. Terry Gipson a low grade on his economic policies. On their 2014 Legislative Scorecard The Business Council scored Gipson at only a 75 percent, citing his failure to support key legislation the group felt would boost New York’s economy. This follows Gipson’s already low scores from Unshackle Upstate (67 percent) and NFIB (64 percent).Read more
RADICAL SENATE DEMOCRAT BILL TO GIVE ILLEGALS THE RIGHT TO VOTE, SERVE ON JURIES AND ACCESS TAXPAYER-FUNDED WELFARE BENEFITS WOULD BE DEVASTATING TO HUDSON VALLEY FAMILIES
Statement from 41st Senate District candidate Sue Serino (R,C,I- Hyde Park):
Today’s New York Post cover-story highlights exactly the devastating impact that awaits our community and our state if Terry Gipson and his liberal New York City allies gain control of the Senate this fall. Allowing illegal aliens the right to vote, serve on juries, run for office, access taxpayer-funded welfare benefits, and get professional licenses, like those for doctors and dentists, is outlandish. Coming on the heels of plans earlier this year to use $20 million of our hard-earned tax dollars to send illegal aliens to college and a proposal to spend $272 million to educate violent illegal criminals, including thugs, rapists and drug dealers, this shows a pattern of our middle-class families becoming second-class citizens in our state.
All three of these plans are an insult and a slap in the face to the hardworking families of the Hudson Valley who really need and deserve tax relief and support for their children. I’ve talked to residents across Dutchess and Putnam counties and everywhere I go I hear the same story: “the well is dry.” Our residents can’t afford to pay their property tax bills, cope with the rising cost of energy and send their children to school. Terry Gipson’s sponsorship of a bill to give free tuition to Illegal Aliens, and his support for the Senate Democratic leadership who have put these outrageous proposals forward, shows how out-of-touch with our community he has become. As Senator I will fight vigorously against these proposals and any other proposal that puts our families second to those who broke the laws of our state and nation.
With the recent start to the school year, County Legislator and 41st state Senate District candidate Sue Serino (R,C,I-Hyde Park) is urging parents, educators and those concerned with the rising cost of school taxes to join her in support of promoting local students’ education. Calling the current system broken, Serino has launched a petition in support of restoring funding for local school districts and fighting back against radical plans that put our children second to illegal aliens and convicted criminals.Read more

Removing the stigma on mental illness and suicide: A Public Health Column from Sue Serino
I know firsthand what suicide and mental illness does to a family. September 22 will mark the four year anniversary of my brother Donald’s death, he was 47 years old. Don was kind, handsome and smart. He loved his three children and was involved and invested in his family. He was a coach and was deeply involved in the community. Don worked for IBM, and later became a personal trainer, because he loved helping others achieve the best in themselves. He was one of the most outgoing and larger than life personalities I have ever known. He lit up every room he walked into and got a smile from everyone in it. That’s why it was so hard for my family and I to understand how someone who was loved so much, full of so much life and energy would commit suicide.Read more
