Senator Serino Honors Our Heroes

HYDE PARK, NY—Senator Sue Serino (R, C, I—Hyde Park) released the following statement today in honor of the Memorial Day holiday:

While words will never be enough to thank them—or their families—for that sacrifice, may they feel the weight of our gratitude throughout the weekend as communities come together to celebrate their lives and dedication.

I wish residents across the Senate District a very happy and safe Memorial Day.”
