Things that go Boom in the Night
Statewide successfully lobbied for passage of legislation allowing a fireworks manufacturing client to do business in New York for the first time.

On behalf of a tech sector client, successfully led an effort to reverse the Cuomo Administration’s policy set by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance to leave the national “Free File” tax program and offer their own free tax filing portal. Working with the Administration, within three years the State reversed its decision, rejoined the Free File program and closed its portal.
