Letter to the Editor

Dear Friends,


As the NYS Senator representing a diverse district stretching from Yonkers to Bedford, one of the most important responsibilities of my office is to assist constituents with the challenges they face. The office receives a wide range of requests for assistance ranging from checking on a late STAR or Enhanced STAR rebate check to difficulties navigating government services such as senior programs and Medicaid. On my team I have three full time staff members who are dedicated to responding to requests, making recommendations on best steps forward, and informing constituents of the resources available.


I am pleased to welcome to my team our newest constituent services staff member, Perla Zuniga Arellano. A resident of Port Chester, Ms. Zuniga is fluent in English and Spanish. She will be connecting with and assisting the Hispanic community throughout the 37th Senate District. Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and say hello if you see her at local events.


The 37th Senate District is comprised of the Villages of Bronxville, Larchmont, Harrison, Mamaroneck, Port Chester, Rye Brook, and Tuckahoe; the Towns of Bedford, Eastchester, Harrison, North Castle, Mamaroneck, and Rye; the Cities of Yonkers, White Plains, Rye and New Rochelle; and the unincorporated places of Katonah, Bedford Hills, and Armonk.


If you need assistance with an issue, you can call my office at 914-934-5250 or email smayer@nysenate.gov. If you need someone who speaks Spanish, please ask for Ms. Perla Zuniga Arellano, or email her at arellano@nysenate.gov.


Kind regards,


Shelley B. Mayer, State Senator
