In February, I successfully worked to reopen the Essex-Charlotte ferry route in Essex County. Restoring cross-border travel is a top priority, and I was happy to work directly with the company to ensure this transportation route was reinstated.
I helped pass legislation that will put tougher penalties on scam robocalls, including a penalty of up to $10,000 per violation. It is important that we fight scammers that seek to take advantage of the vulnerable in our community.
Since 2015, I’ve remained accessible to NY-21 families by listening directly to my constituents at local events. I’ve attended nearly 2,000 constituent events with NY-21 families, & I look forward to many more to continue being their voice at the highest levels.
I was proud to help secure a nearly $200,000 award for the Fort Ticonderoga Association that will help create public programs and exhibitions that further tell the story of Fort Ticonderoga’s integral role in our nation’s history.

I’m proud to have delivered $4 million to NY-21 museums. The North Country and Upstate NY have a rich history, and I will always fight to preserve it by supporting our incredible museums.
Elise helped pass legislation that requires reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers who need them in order to continue working and supporting their families. Elise will continue to be a strong advocate for our working families in NY-21 and beyond.
With violence & chaos occurring in communities across the country, Elise cosponsored important legislation to reaffirm our commitment to law & order by doubling the maximum imprisonment for rioting to 10 years and establishing a mandatory fine of $1,000.
Elise has met with countless families impacted by addiction, and COVID-19 has increased these challenges. That’s why she worked to pass critical grant funding for national and local community programs that offer support services to combat addiction.
Elise asked the Bureau of Prisons and United States Marshal Service to require inmates to be tested for COVID-19 and confirmed negative before they are transferred to any Bureau of Prison quarantine location, which includes the North Country’s FCI Ray Brook. This action protected our correction’s officers and inmates from contracting the virus.
