Democrats Get Assembly Assignments

Great Neck lawmaker named to new leadership post.

Democrats announced Assembly leadership assignments Thursday for 2013-14 legislative session.

Among them was Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, D-Great Neck, named vice chair of the majority Conference.

All Assembly assignments come with at least a $12,500 stipend, according to a Democrat and Chronicle report.
