Brewster, N.Y. – (10/17/12) – Senator Greg Ball (R,C-Patterson) was at the old Brewster Town Hall on Wednesday night to continue his town hall tour and also to accept South East Town Boards veteran nomination and ten other WWII veterans into the 2nd Annual Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
The town hall jobs tour is designed to provide communities with an update following this year’s legislative session. Senator Greg Ball provided an update on issues including the recently passed property tax cap, balanced New York State budget, MTA Tax Repeal, job creation initiatives, lowest middle class tax rate, and also issues affecting seniors, women, children and animals. Residents and local elected officials were also encouraged to ask questions about issues facing New York or affecting their communities.
During Senator Ball’s visit, he accepted the South East Town Boards nomination of Robert Palmer into his 2nd Annual Veterans’ Hall of Fame. Senator Ball also accepted ten other Brewster WWII veterans including Joseph Adamo, Pete Casagrande, William Dwyer, William Lynch, Ed Mitchell, Donald Pippin, Theodore Rozzi, Walter Sieck, Plinio Joseph Manoni and Joseph Cioccloanti. The Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created by Senator Ball, and designed to honor outstanding veterans from throughout the 40th Senate District. Each veteran that will be honored will be included on a traveling wall that will tour local municipalities throughout the 40th district.
“I’m visiting with my constituents and fellow elected officials to hear their concerns and listen to their feedback. I remain totally focused on limiting government, cutting taxes and creating good, local, high paying jobs by finishing the good things I have started, in partnership with my Senate colleagues and Governor Cuomo. It is critically important for me to regularly meet with the local leadership in my rather large district to develop concrete goals moving into the next legislative session. I am here to help in absolutely anyway I can, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart,” said Senator Greg Ball. “These men have chosen a path of courage, honor, integrity and bravery; a path that helped shape America, as we know it, protecting our way of life and liberty. America is not a great country because of its politicians, it’s a great country because of its veterans like these men.”
