“As much as Congresswoman Nita Lowey is a deeply-respected legend in New York State and Washington, she has always been the Hudson Valley’s down-to-earth, compassionate champion. Her work in Rockland County has improved our communities in countless ways and her legacy of empathetic leadership will continue to be an inspiration to us all in public service long after her retirement.
