SCARSDALE, N.Y. – State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins will present an “Update from the State Legislature” Jan. 31 at the Scarsdale Forum Inc. and Town and Village Civic Club general membership meeting.

The meeting gets under way at 8 p.m. in the Scott Room at the Scarsdale Public Library. Preceding the meeting, there will be a reception honoring the chairs of the Forum’s Committees at 7:30 p.m.

Stewart-Cousins, who has served as a state senator since 2006, was elected by her colleagues as the Democratic conference leader, becoming the first woman to lead a Legislative Conference in state history. She is an advocate for human rights, education, accessible and affordable healthcare and making the government a more efficient, transparent entity.

There will be an education committee report on teacher contract negotiations that will be proposed for approval by co-chairs Mary Beth Evans and Carol Stix. Additionally, a municipal services committee report on “the village’s engineering and building departments and the coordinating office,” that will be proposed for approval by co-chair Linda Blair.

A question-and-answer period will follow each presentation.

The Scarsdale Forum is a civic organization that is more than a century old. It is dedicated to improving life in Scarsdale. The forum studies issues before local, regional and state governing bodies and provides input and recommendations through public reports and statements.
