District Map | Website | Hennessey3AD | @Hennessey3AD

Hennessey, who was elected to represent his central Suffolk County 3rd District in 2012, was the prime sponsor of a new state law that increases penalties for texting while driving. A member of the Assembly’s Transportation Committee, he is also the lead sponsor of legislation that will increase penalties for hit-and-run drivers. Hennessey is advocating for a Safe Routes to Transit program for Suffolk County, has requested $1 million for a safer-bike-lane pilot program, and is fighting to have a portion of red-light camera revenue dedicated to complete-streets projects.
