Brooklyn- State Senator Marty Golden (R-C, 22nd District) today invited local residents to nominate friends, coworkers and 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 distinguished women from our area and throughout the state at an Albany reception on June 5th, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of an exhibit proclaiming their special contributions.

"There are remarkable women in our midst whose lives, work or special accomplishments contribute to making our communities better, making our families stronger and serve as special examples to others," said Senator Golden. "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."

Previous winners in the annual event have included leading women from the worlds of business, academics and civic life, as well as those who have performed heroic or selfless acts, made significant discoveries or provided examples of personal excellence against difficult odds. Women who live within the 22nd District are eligible to be considered as a "Woman of Distinction." Special nominations are available by contacting Maria Scarpati at Senator Golden’s office at (718) 238-6044. Nominations must be submitted by April 10, 2007.

The "Woman of Distinction" program was created as part of the Senate’s celebration of Women’s History Month. Senator Marty Golden recently hosted his own celebration and awards ceremony in conjunction with Women’s History Month where he honored local residents who have made outstanding contributions to the betterment and quality of life of our community.
