    Urges Friends To Cast Vote For Waddington For Ultimate Fishing Town

    State Senator Patty Ritchie has announced the New York State Senate has commended the village of Waddington in its campaign to become the national "Ultimate Fishing Town."

    "As we enter the final week of the competition, I need all of my friends across Central and Northern New York to join me in helping Waddington," Senator Ritchie said. "It's time to end upstate New York's status as North America's best kept secret.
