Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) has named Lindsay Farrell, President and CEO of the Open Door Family Medical Centers, a 2011 New York State Woman of Distinction. Each year, the NY Senate honors a select group of outstanding women who have enriched the quality of life in our communities and our state.
In her opening remarks at the public ceremony held recently in the State Capitol, Senator Oppenheimer praised Farrell for her “tireless efforts in making quality, affordable health care a reality for economically disadvantaged residents of Westchester County. Her dedication and vision has quite literally ‘opened the door’ to a brighter, healthier future for countless children and families.”
Senator Oppenheimer pays tribute to generations of women who have pioneered equal rights and opportunities for women
Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) today marked Women’s History Month by reflecting on how women have shaped our society, government, culture and all aspects of our lives. But despite the accomplishments of the past century, inequalities remain, such as the absence of equal pay for equal work and restrictions on a woman’s reproductive rights.
At a ceremony held in Albany on May 15th, Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) paid tribute to Reina Schiffrin, naming her a 2012 Woman of Distinction. Ms. Schiffrin is the President/CEO of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP).
As one of the most senior women in the Senate, Senator Oppenheimer welcomed the honorees at the 2012 Women of Distinction ceremony: “Tonight we honor outstanding women who make our world and our lives better. With us today are individuals of remarkable character. They have demonstrated initiative and commitment in the pursuit of higher goals for themselves, as well as acting as role models for all women.”
