Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I-New Windsor) has launched the 99th Assembly District Reopening and Long Term Recovery Task Force. The goal of this task force is to solicit input from leaders throughout our district regarding legislation and other additional actions that the legislature should take to help the reopening process and ensure long term economic recovery in our region from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Members of the task force include first responders, medical professionals, small business owners, local officials, union members, education professionals, religious leaders as well as others with expertise and insight to offer on a strategic reopening and plans for long-term economic recovery.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our region we must remain focused on the medical response and containment measures but also look ahead to reopening and long term economic recovery,” Schmitt said. “In order to facilitate the reopening process and ensure long term economic recovery in our region from the COVID-19 pandemic I have formed an Assembly District reopening and long term recovery task force. I look forward to working with local partners from a diverse set of backgrounds to ensure we can get back on track and come back stronger than ever before. Please stay well during these trying times and as always feel free to reach out to my office for any assistance you may need.”
The 99th Assembly District Reopening and Long Term Recovery Task Force will be asked to provide input from their respective expertise and the office of Assemblyman Schmitt will conduct virtual meetings during the reopening and recovery process with task force members.
