State Assemblymember Patricia Fahy (NY-109) enjoys being able to read about an issue in the news and have the ability to solve it. She sees her district as the heart of New York, both legislatively and geographically. 

Fahy wishes more people knew that there are thousands of bills at play (many of which are very lengthy!), which makes setting priorities both difficult, but incredibly important. 

The three words Fahy associates most with her district are "nature, arts,  and diverse." Her first job was flipping burgers at Burger King at age 14.
