On behalf of the St. Lawrence County Maple Producers Association and the New York State Maple Producers Association, we are extremely proud of the hard work and support Senator Ritchie and her office has obtained for these two organizations.
The $125,000 that was allocated as part of the state 2013-20 budget that the state association received was secured when the state is facing such financial difficulties. This is only one of the many things that she has accomplished for state and local organizations. Today many people are saying, How can this be done? Not her; she has found another way to promote New York state even more.
Such support and dedication is what got her elected and many people fail to see this. You may call them ordinary characteristics, but theyre not, theyre extraordinary. Not only can the people of St. Lawrence County be proud of her representation but all the people of New York state. Again thank you Senator Ritchie for all your hard work, dedication and devotion for all the people of New York state.
The writer is president, St. Lawrence County Maple Producers Association
