Fuschillo to Resign from State Senate

The senator will be taking on a private-sector job.

Senator Charles Fuschillo, R-Merrick, announced on Tuesday that he will be leaving the New York State Senate. 

In a statement he wrote:  

“Tomorrow, we begin a new year which brings with it new beginnings, new opportunities, and new challenges. With that in mind, I have decided that it is time to begin a new chapter in my life and leave the New York State Senate effective 11:59 p.m. tonight." 

Fuschillo said that starting in January he will serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

"This is a new and exciting opportunity which will allow me to continue to help improve the lives of others while at the same time enabling me to spend more time with my family," he said. 

The Merrick resident served individuals of the  8th Senate District for close 16 years. 

"Serving in the Senate is both an honor and privilege which I will always cherish and be forever grateful," he said. "I thank everyone in the community for giving me that privilege and wish each of you the very best in the future.”

In a County and Town full of self-serving politicians, Fuschillo is the opposite. He represented his constituents well, and he will be missed. I wish him all the best.
