Amy Paulin Announces Winner of the 'There Ought to Be a Law' Contest PDF Print Email


By Office of Assemblywoman Amy Paulin

May 10, 2017:  New York State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin is proud to announce that Jacob Ferrara, a seventh-grader at Pelham Middle School, is the winner of the "There Ought to Be a Law" contest.

This is the second year Paulin has sponsored the contest, which asks students to identify an issue impacting New York State residents and to craft a legislative solution. Ferrara's proposed law would mandate free pre-K for all four-year-olds in New York State, giving all students the advantage of early learning. Paulin will be introducing legislation to address this important issue.  

Georgia ConnellyGreta Fear, and James Findikyan finished in a three-way tie for second place after each wrote about the dangers of toxic chemicals in cosmetics. Paulin will introduce legislation regarding toxic ingredients in children's products.

There was also a two-way tie for third place between Claire Aumer and Mark Tarazi. Aumer proposed that all puppy mills be subject to stricter monitoring, and Tarazi proposed a bill that would call for terminally ill patients to be able to die with dignity. These proposed bills support legislation that Paulin has introduced.

"We received so many wonderful ideas, almost 100, for a second year in a row. I want to thank all those students who took the time and effort to participate in the contest. It is clear that we have some very intelligent, civic-minded youngsters in the district and teachers who encourage them to apply what they have learned in school to real life."

Last year, Paulin collaborated with winners Pelham Middle School student Sarah Jane O’Connor, on A.2432 to enhance insurance coverage for hearing aids, and Tuckahoe Middle School's Jack Doherty, on A.2093 to make it illegal to tamper with or alter parts of a student's educational files or data, including athletic records. Both bills are currently in committee in the New York State Assembly.

Ferrara will visit Paulin in Albany later this spring, where he will be presented with a citation and make an appearance on the assembly floor.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
