Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) recently presented Hempstead Councilwoman Angie Cullin with a framed copy of her Woman of Distinction display. Councilwoman Cullin was joined by Merrick resident Gail Volk as Senator Fuschillo’s 2005 New York State Senate "Women of Distinction" honorees.
"Councilwoman Cullin has given so much of her time and of herself to our community that it was my privilege to honor her. The residents of her district could not ask for a better representative," said Senator Fuschillo. "I offer her my most sincere congratulations on receiving this very special honor and thank her for the service she has provided."
In 1987, Angie Cullin became the first woman in the history of the Town of Hempstead to serve as a member of the Town Board. She again made history in 1993 by becoming the first woman ever to hold the office of Receiver of Taxes. She returned to the Town Board in 2000 as the representative of the fifth councilmatic district, and was reelected again in 2003. In addition to her governmental service, Councilwoman Cullin belongs to a number of local charitable and civic organizations.
The New York State Senate’s "Women of Distinction" program was created in 1998 to recognize outstanding women in our midst -- women living and working in New York State whose contributions have greatly enriched the quality of life in their communities and beyond.
