CANTON -- LeadingAge New York is hosting a campaign event for State Sen. Patty Ritchie and Assemblywoman Addie Russell at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5 at the Best Western, 90 E. Main St.
The “Celebrating the Partners in Quality Awards” event, “to celebrate those who raise their voices for the elderly and disabled of New York State,” will be followed by a reception.
Both Ritchie, Republican state senator representing the 45th Senate District, and Russell, a Democrat from the 118th Assembly District, are running for re-election in November.
LeadingAge New York, formerly the New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, an Albany-area group, describes itself as a “powerful, respected and influential force in the New York political arena.”
The event is co-sponsored by United Helpers of Ogdensburg, a leading caring agency in St. Lawrence County focusing on the elderly and disabled.
