State Senator John J. Bonacic (R/I/C - Mount Hope) today invited local residents to nominate friends, coworkers, and/or neighborhood leaders whose outstanding work on behalf of our communities makes them deserving of special recognition by the State Senate as a New York "Woman of Distinction."

The Senate will honor a distinguished woman from our area and throughout New York State at a June 20th Albany reception, where each honoree's photograph and biography will become part of a special exhibit proclaiming the special contributions of exemplary New York women.

"There are remarkable women in our midst, whose lives, work, or special accomplishments contribute to making our communties better, making our families stronger, and serve as special examples to others," stated Senator Bonacic. "The Senate's Woman of Distinction program provides a special opportunity to honor these women for their achievements and to thank them for the special pride they bring to our communities."

Women who live the the 42nd Senate District, which includes the Counties of Delaware, Sullivan, Orange, and Ulster are eligible to be considered as a "Woman of Distinction." Special nomination forms are available by contacting Senator Bonacic's office at (845) 255-9656. Nominations must be received by April 30th.

"There are many women among us who are deserving of special recognition. I look forward to receiving nominations for consideration," concluded Senator Bonacic.
