New York State Senator John J. Bonacic invites local residents from the 42nd Senate District to nominate colleagues, friends, and neighborhood leaders whose exceptional work on the behalf of their communities make them deserving of special recognition as a New York “Woman of Distinction” by the New York State Senate.
This program is part of Women’s History celebration in March and provides a great opportunity to nominate a woman who has made a remarkable contribution. A ceremony honoring the distinguished woman from each Senate District will be held in Albany, NY on Tues., May 1 at 5:30 p.m. The honoree from each senate district will have their photograph and biography displayed as part of a special exhibit showcasing the contributions of exemplary New York women.
Nominations must include a brief biography of approximately 300 words detailing the reason the nominee should be selected as this year’s Woman of Distinction. Nominations must include the town or city of residence and phone number of the nominee. Those making nominations should also include their own name and contact information. Nominations must be received by Fri., Mar. 23 and emailed to Senator Bonacic’s Office at email@example.com, or call 344-3311.
