“Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill on Wednesday that restores the full term of an East Ramapo school trustee after it was halved last summer due to a technical error.
The bill, which passed unanimously in the Senate and Assembly earlier this month, allows Sabrina Charles-Pierre to serve the two-year term she was elected to last May. It was sponsored by state Sen. David Carlucci and Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee.
On Wednesday evening Charles-Pierre thanked the Senate, Assembly and Governor for passing the bill, as well as the community, school board and Superintendent Deborah Wortham for their support.
“I think that East Ramapo has so much potential to achieve so much and as long as we work together, a lot can and will be accomplished. Our children deserve the best and will get the best. There is so much work to be done. It’s not going to happen overnight, but we will get there. Let us continue to work together and move forward. Remember that you can’t spell ‘CommUNITY’ without ‘Unity.’ We’re going all the way up!,” Charles-Pierre said.”
