A New York state Senator who did not run for re-election, has unveiled the details of his private sector plans.

A tight congressional race in the Hudson Valley has both sides chasing every possible vote. And robocalls going out for the incumbent include those from an unlikely supporter.

Robocalls from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ask voters in the 18th congressional district to vote for Democratic incumbent Sean Patrick Maloney. Robocalls for Maloney have also gone out from this elected official.

Renovations are complete for a disabled veteran’s house in Dutchess County. The work of a state senator and national program made it possible and there will be a ceremony later Saturday morning. Republican state Senator Greg Ball and Purple Heart Homes will host a welcome-home ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. for Private Dan Flanigan’s renovated house in Pawling.

The ceremony will kick off with a parade from the Pawling IGA supermarket to Flanigan’s 101 year-old home. Flanigan, a Vietnam veteran, inherited his parent’s Pawling home in 1999, which was in disrepair.
