Humility, industry, collegiality, and sincerity, are all defining characteristics of New York State Senator James Skoufis. Unconfined by the complex and mirky apparatus of government, he’s proven himself to be a stalwart of both his constituents and their rights time and time again. In glistening contrast to what millions of Americans perceive to be the insolence and slothishness typical of legislators, Skoufis plays hardball. His staunch opposition to overdevelopment in the communities of his district, the gusto he maintained while awakening the dormant state senate Investigations committee as it’s chair, his strong record of bipartisan legislation, and the resilience he’s shown against the scourges of his own political party, are just a few reasons out of many, as to why Mr. Skoufis has earned the right to remain your state senator come this election day on November 3rd.
