Senator Foley Seeks 'Everyday Heroes'

Senator Foley seeks to honor our ‘Everyday Heroes.'  These are the members of the community who have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact and leave a lasting mark on their surroundings. An ‘Everyday Hero’ could be the person who mows the lawn for the seniors in the community, tutors children in need at their library, delivers meals to the hungry or anyone else who selflessly makes a difference in their community.

Please use the form below to nominate the ‘Everyday Heroes’ in your community. There is no deadline for this application; nominees will be recognized weekly.

Senator Foley Statement on the Passing of His Colleague, Senator Morahan

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my colleague, Senator Thomas Morahan, earlier this week.

Senator Morahan was a dedicated public servant who made it his mission to be a voice for a community that often had no voice - the mentally disabled.  He fought to make sure that they received the level of care and treatment they needed and deserved.  It is a legacy that will live on.

Senator Morahan was part of a group in Albany that believed in putting partisanship aside in order to accomplish what is best for the residents of New York.  It was truly an honor to have served with him in the New York State Senate over the last year and a half.
