Where is the follow up interview with Frank MacKay from Wednesday Sept.29?
Senator Boyle, your healthcare constituents need your help in fighting the mandated covid 19 vaccine. We, who were there for the entire pandemic, caring for the sick through it all need you!! We are not anti vaccine, we believe everyone should have the right to decide what goes into their body. Please help us fight this unfair 'mandate'!!
I guess you're ready to rubber stamp whatever new laws Emperor Cuomo comes up with during this Gun Violence Emergency...
Senator I admire your courage
To Phil Boyle
Now with this new law passed will it effect assisted living like the Bristol whom I hold responsible for her death. If so what is different than before to save seniors lives in these homes like the Bristol. This is important to people that lost love ones from covid

The Bristol had very few staff to take care of her. She was abused because she was dehydrated and was not being feed. losing a great deal of weightI called your office and you sent Patty Walsh caseworker to find out what was happening. What you told me that you could do nothing because cuomo had emergency powers and I could not take any legal action against him because he had immunity from prosecution.

As you know my wife of 55 years died because of the way the bristol assisted living May 20th 2020 because Cuomo sent positive patients from NY Long Island hospital into the bristol infecting her with covid and many other in this facility.
Vote No on S75A, This is a bill that will create a database for vaccine records of adults to be run by NY State. I am opposed to this bill overall due to a concern for the State’s ability to keep our precious medical records (and personal information) secure from hacking. According to the HIPAA Journal, there was a 25% increase in healthcare database breaches in 2020 (https://www.hipaajournal.com/2020-healthcare-data-breach-report-us/). Even Multi-Million Dollar Healthcare companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield are not immune from the nefarious intentions of hackers (https://www.bcbsnd.com/newscenter/news/archive/message-from-excellus-bluecross-blueshield-regarding-data-breach). With this in mind, I urge you to please stand in opposition to the passing of S75A and help protect the very precious medical and personal data of your constituents.
If you are still inclined to vote in favor of the bill, I implore you to strengthen the language of the opt-out amendment. While it allows a patient receiving a vaccine to opt-out of the database should they choose, it does not do enough. The amendment does not require the administrator of a vaccine to inform the patient of their right to opt-out. This seems backwards as most people seeking medical treatment rely on their healthcare provider to inform them of their rights and treatment procedures. I urge you to update this amendment to include a mandate that the patient MUST be informed of their right to opt out of having their medical information included in a State-run database.
PUSH HARD NOW FOR ELDER PAROLE AND FAIR & TIMELY PAROLE IN NEW YORK STATE: Please call your New York State Senator and New York State Assemblywoman NOW to pass Elder Parole & Fair & Timely Parole in New York State.

Passing this important Elder Parole & Fair & Timely Parole bill in the New York State Assembly, and Senate, as well as having New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signing the bill into law would address the deeply troubling aging crisis in the New York State prison system and would reconnect reformed people with their families, and free up resources to address the actual root causes of crime in New York State. We can not afford to wait, and we must not wait any longer for #ParoleJusticeNY.

I call on all concerned clergy, congregations, and community members to wholeheartedly support our RAPP (Release Aging People in Prison) Long Island Regional Organizer, Elmer O. Flores, in the historic fight for Parole Justice, and to pass Elder Parole & Fair & Timely Parole in New York State Assembly and Senate.

I believe in Elmer O. Flores. Mr. Flores is a highly respected young activist, organizer, mover, shaker, and influence maker. Who is deeply committed to the cause of parole justice. Mr. Flores has the necessary integrity to move the cause forward and make a major difference with your help. Teamwork makes the parole justice dream of work.

Stop the vote on the vaccine database. We the people object.
No to S75! Our medical records should be private!
How do we get put on a Do Not Call list that your organization will respect? The nearly daily robocalls are getting to be a bit much!

Yesterday, Senator Alexis Weik and I had the privilege of visiting Eileen’s Free Bodega, a non-for-profit organization at the Christ Episcopal Church in Brentwood. Eileen’s Free Bodega is the first Long Island-based community fridge, and has made it their mission to provide fresh food to those in need.

Thank you to Joshua Chan, Amanda Sweeny, Ana Pelinsky, and to all those who have donated. The community fridge is open 24 hours a day for those who wish to drop off food and for those who may be in need.

Next Thursday, April 28th, the Bay Shore Alumni Association will be presenting a free private screening of the moving documentary, “Walk With Frank.”

For the last 30 years, Bay Shore High School Alumni and Vietnam War Veteran, Frank Romeo, has traveled the country and helped raise awareness for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Frank has had PTSD since returning from Vietnam, and dedicated his life to helping veterans struggling with the illness.

Frank’s story is an inspiring tale of perseverance and determination, and he has helped thousands of veterans throughout the country.

The screening will be shown at Bay Shore High School in the main auditorium at 7 PM. I encourage you all to come down to the BSHS and watch this incredible documentary, and please visit WalkWithFrankFilm.com to learn more about how you can aid our veterans.

Russia's ruthless invasion of Ukraine has left over 4.2 million Ukrainians displaced from their homes. As the crisis rages on, we must do whatever we can to help those Ukrainians from this unprovoked war.

The Town of Babylon IDA has engaged in a fundraising effort to aid Ukrainian refugees with a goal to collect a minimum of $25,000. The initiative thus far has collected just over $19,000, but needs your help to reach their goal.

On Wednesday, April 27th, from 6:00-9:00 PM, the Town of Babylon IDA will be hosting a fundraising event at the Belfast Gastro Pub in Lindenhurst. Tickets include admission to the event, as well as beer, wine, soda, and appetizers.

Checks can be made payable to "Holy Family Ukrainian Catholic Church" with "Support Ukraine" written in the memo line. The checks can be mailed to Babylon IDA 47 W Main Street, Suite 3, Babylon, NY, 11702.

Please come out and support our Ukrainian friends in need!

It's time to give someone else a chance.

After much thought and consideration, I have decided to not seek re-election to the New York State Senate.

Serving as a New York State Senator for the last decade has truly been the greatest honor of my life. Together with my absolutely incredible staff members, past and present, it has been a privilege to assist countless Long Islanders through some of the most challenging times in recent history, including Superstorm Sandy and the Covid-19 Pandemic. Having had the opportunity to pass many laws and secure tens of millions of dollars for local projects and programs, I cannot convey how appreciative I am to my constituents for having allowed me to serve them, not only as their state senator, but also as their state assembly member for the sixteen years prior to that.

Most importantly, leaving the state senate does not mean I intend to leave public service. I will just be looking to serve in a more local capacity. And, I have to admit, after decades of commuting to Albany, it will be a welcome change to work closer to home.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to represent you. And here's to the next chapter!

Over the weekend I had the privilege of joining Diane Piagentini, widow of slain NYPD Officer Joe Piagentini, in demanding that SUNY Brockport rescind their invite of Joe’s murderer, Anthony Bottom, to speak to their students.

As a strong supporter of law enforcement, I believe cop killers should never be paroled. So the thought of a taxpayer-funded college inviting such a heinous criminal to speak, claiming he had been incarcerated as a “political prisoner,” is inconceivable to me.

If you agree that SUNY Brockport should rescind their invite to Anthony Bottom then please contact Governor Kathy Hochul’s office to express your views.

Thank You to Assemblyman Keith Brown for organizing the rally; NYPD PBA President Pat Lynch and a large, bipartisan contingent of my fellow elected officials and friends in law enforcement for attending.

Wonderful day marching in the first-ever Lindenhurst St. Patrick’s Day parade!!! Huge turnout!!! It was great to see former Congressman Pete King, who was deservedly named Grand Marshall in recognition of his many years working to promote peace in Northern Ireland.

Another thing I thought was pretty cool is that there were as many Ukrainian flags being waved along the parade route as Irish flags. Congratulations to the parade committee for an incredible inaugural parade and here is to many more in the years to come. 🇮🇪🇺🇦🇺🇸

Today I joined a bipartisan group of elected officials and labor leaders in opposing the proposal’s by Governor Kathy Hochul and the Democrats in our state legislature that would ban commercial and residential construction using natural gas within the next few years.

While we all support a move towards renewable energy, we cannot require all new construction in New York State to be built with electric heat so quickly. We simply do not yet have the capacity to make these changes - and it will mean power shortages throughout our state. Remember what happened in the State of Texas last winter? This could be much worse.

Further, this proposal will result in major job losses and increased energy costs for New Yorkers. In a time with raging gas prices and economic uncertainty, our residents need reliable access to affordable sources of energy.

Thank you to State Senator Mario Mattera; Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer; Builders and Construction Trades Council of Nassau and Suffolk Counties President Matt Aracich; Representative of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors– National Association Mark Valentini; Long Island Builders Institute CEO Mitch Pally; IEBW Local Union 1049 member Patrick Guidice; and Plumbers Local 200 representative Danny Grodotzke for coming together in the fight against the all-electric mandate.

Republican lawmakers on Long Island pushing for change to bail reform laws There are new calls to roll back New York's bail reform laws as Republican lawmakers on Long Island push for a change they say will save lives; CBS2's Carolyn Gusoff reports.

Today, I joined my colleagues in the Long Island State Senate Republican delegation at the Brentwood Fire Department in support of “Billy’s Law,” a new bill introduced by Senator Mike Martucci of Orange County that would authorize bail and pre-trial detention for all arson felonies.

On Saturday, January 15th, 2022, William “Billy” Steinberg, Assistant Chief with the Forestburgh Fire Company, responded to a fire in an empty vacation home in Sullivan County, where he tragically passed away at the scene due to a heart attack. Billy was just 37 years old. A man who was charged by police with intentionally setting fires days prior on the 10th and 13th of January, was set free on the 14th due to New York State’s current bail reform law. That same man, who was not held on bail for his crimes, has been identified by police to be the one who set the fire that took Billy Steinberg’s life.

As a volunteer firefighter of 25 years, I understand the vital necessity of passing “Billy’s Law.” We must act to protect not only New York’s firefighters but all of our residents who may be harmed when arsonists are released without bail. We must pass “Billy’s Law,” to prevent serial arsonists from committing any future crimes and to keep our communities safe.

Thank you to Senator Martucci for spearheading this legislation. And thanks to Senators Alexis Weik; Mario Mattera; Anthony Palumbo; senior representatives from law enforcement; and members of the Brentwood Fire Department for joining me in support of “Billy’s Law."
