Senator Todd Kaminsky was sworn for his third term in the New York State Legislature in a ceremony on the floor of the Senate chamber. New York State Chief Judge Janet DiFiore administered the oath of office, as the senator vowed to continue fighting for his constituents throughout the 9th Senate District.
“I was humbled to be sworn in for my third term in the State Senate today, and I’m excited to get back to work,” said Senator Kaminsky. “We need to cut taxes, give our children the education they deserve, fix the LIRR, and put an end to the corruption that has infested our state. This year in Albany, I look forward to combating the BDS movement, ensuring our yeshivas have the resources to deliver a first-rate education, and keeping our shuls and yeshivas safe and secure.”
This session, as the senior member of the Senate Majority’s Long Island delegation, Senator Kaminsky will be in a unique position to advance policy and budgetary matters of importance to Long Island families, businesses, and seniors. Kaminsky was also tapped to serve as chair of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, a role the senator will utilize to protect and preserve the pristine natural resources of the Island and New York State at large.
Prior to being elected to the Senate, Kaminsky served as the assembly member for the 20th Assembly District, where he set a record in the chamber for having more bills passed than any other freshman legislator. Previously, Kaminsky was a prosecutor in both the Queens District Attorney’s Office as well as the Eastern District U.S. Attorney’s Office, where he served as acting deputy chief of the Public Integrity Unit.
