LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Lieutenant Michael Conlon upon the
occasion of his retirement after 30 years of distinguished service to
the Village of Kensington Police Department

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and honor
those distinguished officers and citizens who would devote themselves to
public service, demonstrating great courage and diligence in providing
for the care and welfare of the citizens of their communities and this
great Empire State; and

certain individuals who, by virtue of their commitment and dedication,

plary contributions and service on behalf of others; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commend Lieutenant
Michael Conlon upon the occasion of his retirement after 30 years of
distinguished service to the Village of Kensington Police Department to
be celebrated on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, in Kensington, New York; and
WHEREAS, Michael Conlon began his career with the Village of Kensing-
ton Police Department on November 1, 1985, and was promoted to Sergeant
in September of 1997, after just 12 years on the job; and
WHEREAS, In April of 2010, Officer Michael Colon was promoted to the
esteemed rank of Lieutenant, as well as Police Chief, a position in
which he ably served for almost six years; and
WHEREAS, Throughout his illustrious tenure, Lieutenant Michael Conlon

other police departments for numerous acts of bravery and kindness,
including running into burning buildings to rescue others, and digging
out a resident whose car was stuck in the snow; and
WHEREAS, In his official acts, Lieutenant Michael Conlon was governed
by a keen sense of duty and always showed a unique grasp of human prob-
lems, earning him the admiration, esteem and affection of his
colleagues; and
WHEREAS, With him throughout have been his wife, and three children,
all of whom feel privileged to be a part of his life and rejoice in his
achievements; and
WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body that those dedi-
cated public servants who unselfishly devote their lives to the preser-
vation of order and the protection of others are worthy and due full
praise for their commitment and noble endeavors; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Lieutenant Michael Conlon upon the occasion of his retirement
after 30 years of distinguished service to the Village of Kensington
Police Department to be celebrated on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, and to

Law Section:
Resolutions, Legislative

     Senator Jack M. Martins (R-7th Senate District) will be sponsoring a program in Great Neck to help senior citizens protect themselves from scams and fraud.  The program, which Senator Martins is holding with the New York State Department of State’s Division of Consumer Protection, will take place at the Great Neck Social Center on Thursday, March 10th at 11 am.  

Making our state a better place can only be accomplished when citizens take an active role by making their voices heard and their priorities known. That’s why I’m asking Central and Northern New Yorkers to weigh in on what matters to them through my 2016 Legislative Survey.

Every day, I’m working hard to tackle issues that have an impact on you, including things like the need to grow good-paying jobs and a stronger economy, lowering taxes, improving educational opportunities for students and creating a better quality of life in our communities.
