In Livingston County, it s very easy to be engaged and active in the community, we are lucky to have so many around us, there is a web of support, multiple organizations. Thanks to the Iroquois Trail Council and the Eagle Scouts who were honored. I have two teenage daughters, so I know with social media and smart phones the pace kids live today to get that honor? I appreciate your dedication. At Tompkins Bank, not only do they encourage us to participate in the county, they support the county and they are here tonight to support me and the council. My wife (Susan) supports me too, and is a role model for me and for our daughters.
