On Friday April 10th, Legislator Piccirillo marked his 100th day in office by celebrating with a social media post that highlighted some of the events and accomplishments that happened within the past 100 days.

Over the past 100 days, the Legislator and his District Office held multiple events, resolved over 225 constituent issues, passed legislation, introduced 3 bills, and attended many community meetings and events. The newly elected Legislator has also dealt with two unexpected tragedies: the death of Thomas Valva and the COVID-19 crisis on Long Island.
“I am really proud of the outreach my office has done within the last 100 days” said the freshman Legislator. “The 8th Legislative District Office handled and resolved over 225 constituent cases and attended more than 15 Civic and Chamber meetings within the 100 Day span” Piccirillo added. A top priority for the newly elected Legislator was connecting with the community and ensuring they have someone representing their voice. “Helping the community has really been a highlight for me” said the Legislator. “I made a promise that I would be a full time Legislator and I am glad to say that I have kept my promise” said Legislator Piccirillo. “I am in my District Office every day and work full time for the residents of the 8th Legislative District” added Piccirillo.
In addition to community outreach, Legislator Piccirillo passed his first bill which secured over $7,000 for the Bayport Blue Point Heritage Association. “I was very happy that I was able to secure these funds for my district” said Legislator Piccirillo. Anthony has also introduced two additional pieces of Legislation that have not yet been voted on. These two introductory resolutions will suspend the Boot & Tow program until a payment plan is implemented, and to add fines and penalties to an existing records retention law. The Legislator has also co-sponsored numerous pieces of Legislation, including creating an Independent office of Inspector General, as well as putting a minority member of the Legislature on to the RFP Waiver Committee.
“These past 100 days went by quick; in this short span we have dealt with crisis, and tragedy; but we have also experienced so much good and positive” said the Legislator. “The 8th Legislative District is very special; the sense of community and togetherness the residents have in LD8 is amazing, even when we are now physically apart- we stay connected together” said Piccirillo. “I’m very proud to serve in our community” added the Legislator. Legislator Piccirillo has much more he wants to accomplish in his first term in office, but is happy with the fast start. The Legislator is looking forward to continuing to work hard for all the residents of the 8th Legislative District.
