Marylou Whitney Way Bill
On Monday I was proud to speak in support of my bill that would rename part of Route 9P in Saratoga Springs after the "Forever First Lady of Saratoga Springs" Marylou Whitney. State Route 9P between I87 and East Avenue, currently known as Union Avenue, and running adjacent to the Saratoga Race Course would be renamed to Marylou Whitney Way. Throughout her life, Marylou Whitney embodied all that is good, noble, and proud of Saratoga. Her philanthropic work in Saratoga transformed numerous lives and left an indelible mark on the city, county, and region. In the words of her husband John Hendrickson, "She loved Saratoga because of the people. She would be thrilled that a part of Saratoga is being named after her."
