Last week, I was given the Public Service Award by the ANOROC Democratic Club during their 82nd Anniversary Dinner Dance in Astoria, Queens. Public service has always been a gratifying experience for me, and to be honored in this capacity only deepens my appreciation for the members of my community and for the office I hold.
Queens Chronicle wrote a brief article on the award:
On March 3, state Senator Michael Gianaris was given the Public Service Award at ANOROC Democratic Club’s 82nd Anniversary Dinner Dance. Gianaris was honored for his leadership on government reform issues, sponsorship of measures that improve the efficiency and transparency of state government and his unwavering service to the people of the Astoria community.
