Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) and Assemblyman Dave McDonough (R-North Merrick) recently honored Bellmore resident Joni Caputo for her many years of service to the Chamber of Commerce of the Bellmores. Ms. Caputo recently retired as the Chamber’s longtime Executive Director.
Senator Fuschillo and Assemblyman McDonough presented Ms. Caputo with a copy of a legislative resolution they sponsored in honor of her many years of service to the Chamber and the Bellmore community. With passage of the legislative resolution by the State Senate, Ms. Caputo’s name and record of service will forever be part of the New York State Senate’s official record.
“Joni Caputo is a very hardworking woman who has served the Bellmore community for many years. As Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, she worked hand-in-hand with businesses, residents, and community organizations to help make Bellmore a better place to live and work. Joni also coordinated the Chamber’s highly successful Bellmore Street Fair, which attracts over 100,000 people to the heart of downtown Bellmore each year. She will be greatly missed, and I wish her all the best as she begins this newest chapter of her life,” said Senator Fuschillo.
