Lawmakers and officials from St. Lawrence County sat down with State Senators Patty Ritchie, Joseph Griffo and Betty Little in Albany Tuesday to talk about efforts to relieve local government of burdensome mandates, as well as other issues affecting the North Country.

“When it comes to making our region a better place it’s so important to be able to hear firsthand about what we can do at the state level to help our counties more easily balance their budgets and deliver vitally important services to taxpayers,” said Senator Ritchie. 

State Senator Mike Nozzolio recently nominated Frank J. Pullano, a distinguished local veteran, Frank J. Pullano, as an inductee into the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame. Frank Pullano who died in February was posthumously inducted today during a special ceremony at the State Capitol for his service to our Nation.
