    State Senator, Westchester County

    As one of the Country's most powerful members of Congress, Nita Lowey has always been a true grassroots advocate for the people she represents in Westchester and Rockland counties. For years she has been able to balance the demands of being in Washington and in her district because she understands how to deliver real results that make people's lives better every day.
