— Residents from the 42nd Senate District are invited 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.

“There are incredible women in New York State who devote a great deal of time, energy, and patience into making their communities stronger," State Senator John J. Bonacic (R/C/I-Mt. Hope). "The annual Women of Distinction Program provides the opportunity to recognize the success of these valuable women at the local level and celebrate their achievements at the state level. This program also provides a special occasion to thank women for their notable impact on the lives of others."

Previous honorees have included business leaders, community advocates, educators, everyday heroes, volunteers, innovators, and those who triumphed despite difficult odds. 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 on Tuesday, 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 displaying the contributions of exemplary New York women.

If you would like to make a nomination, send an email to Senator Bonacic’s Office at tdowns@nysenate.gov, or call 845-344-3311.

The 42nd Senate District includes the following communities: all of Sullivan County; the following Towns in Delaware County: Masonville, Tompkins, Walton, Hamden, Delhi, and Colchester; the following Towns in Orange County: Deerpark, Goshen, Greenville, Hamptonburgh, Minisink, Mount Hope, Tuxedo, Wallkill, Warwick, Wawayanda; Cities of Middletown and Port Jervis; and in Ulster County, the Towns of Denning, Gardiner, New Paltz, Rosendale, Shawangunk, and Wawarsing.

Nominations must include a brief biography of approximately 300 words detailing the reason your 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 Friday, March 23.
