(Albany, NY)- Senate President Malcolm A. Smith attended the Great New York State Fair in Onondaga County today where he spoke at a special ceremony honoring Korean War veterans. The senator also hosted a luncheon with dozens of local leaders, community advocates and residents, where he spoke about the Senate’s efforts to build economic bridges between rural and urban communities, as well as Upstate and Downstate.
It was wonderful to be able to meet with veterans at the St. Albans VA and bring them gifts as a small thank you for their great service to our country. I gave out about 200 goodie bags as part of my Send A Vet A Valentine Program. Shown in this photo is veteran Vincent Gino.
Thank you to all of those who participated in the New York State Senate's fist ever online Town Hall. Since we're always striving to serve the people of New York better, and this was our first attempt at an event like this, we would appreciate your feedback on how we can improve the experience.
