Mentors Magazine Article

I have heard from several you about the Mentors Magazine. More specifically about NY not having an article in the past 2 issues. 1st, my bad. 2nd. I now have a calendar that has the deadlines so I can plan ahead. The last article was due June 23rd. My son’s High School Graduation was June 21st and I found out about the article due date too late. Also the reason I wasn’t at the National Convention in Orlando. Communication between National and State Senators needs to improve, as does State Senate and all of you. I have been participating in local events with my home chapter and I hope to hear stories of you helping your chapters. As summer draws to a close I hope to be able to focus on the Senate more and make you proud of our organization.
