A Champion for Education

Sean is a tireless advocate for students, teachers, and education in New York State. He works every day to make sure New York is investing in education and our children's future. Every child in Western New York deserves to benefit from a great education, no matter what zip code they live in.

Sean also advocated for significant funding for statewide universal pre-K, because starting the learning process early helps children develop critical skills and prepares them for success.
