Dear Neighbor:

Since taking office, I have met countless outstanding women who work hard to make a difference in our community. These women care for our neighbors, family and friends, and I am a better person for having met them. All too often, their exceptional acts go unnoticed. That is why I am hosting my Third Annual “Women of Distinction” event to honor those women who go above and beyond the call of duty.

This prestigious award gives our community the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the extraordinary women who make our community a safer, better place to live. I would like to encourage you to nominate a woman you know who deserves to be recognized for her achievements or contributions to the community.

I am accepting nominations of outstanding women from the 17th Assembly District to receive “Women of Distinction” awards. My selection committee will review all nominations for notable women in the fields of business, community and civic affairs, education, government, health services, humanitarian, and veteran and military services. If you know a woman who deserves this award, please fill out the nomination form below and either fax it to my district office – (516) 739-5459 or mail it to Assemblyman Tom McKevitt, 224 Seventh Street, Suite 200, Garden City, NY 11530 or e-mail me at

The awards will be presented on Saturday, August 15 at the VFW Hall in Albertson and on Saturday, August 22 at the Merrick Public Library with a small reception immediately following each presentation. Nominees must be residents of the 17th Assembly District. Please submit your nominations by Friday, July 31st.

I hope you will join me in thanking the outstanding women of our community who have helped our neighborhoods prosper. Their tireless work and unwavering commitment has not gone unnoticed. If you have any questions, please call my office at (516) 739-5119.

Thank you for taking the time to honor the women of our community who have given so much and deserve our appreciation.
