Colin Schmitt: stopping KJ's uncontrolled and unchecked growth and protecting our communities.

As a private citizen Colin launched a prominent 'purple ribbon' social media campaign to oppose annexation.

In the State Assembly, Colin will lead the fight against systemic welfare abuse and property annexations and defend our natural resources by opposing the KJ Pipeline.  

Colin has proposed an aggressive DEC oversight plan, which includes locally-held state legislative oversight hearings on DEC failures and using legislative checks against Cuomo and his political DEC. 

Colin has developed the boldest anti-blockbusting plan, which includes protections against unethical and illegal real estate solicitations and harassment to protect our neighborhoods from KJ's uncontrolled growth.
