April 25, 2020- A Message from Supervisor Linda Puglisi

Hello this is Linda Puglisi, Supervisor of the Town of Cortlandt. I want to once again take a few moments to check in with everyone and to tell you we are all in this together. We truly are going through this challenge together and we’ll come out of it stronger. It has been a difficult month and a half, but we’ve drawn strength from each other and knowing we’re not alone. Today I want to speak about our wonderful senior citizens in our community. Many of these seniors live alone and therefore have limited contact with family or friends, especially during this trying time as we socially distance. Could you be so kind to call seniors in your neighborhood that you know just say hello and ask them how they are doing? I know they’ll be very appreciative, that kind gesture will mean so much. Our Senior Center staff also has reached out to the members of our senior clubs. I know personally when my two grandsons and my children are on Zoom with me and we have great talks, those moments mean so much to me. I’m sure you all have similar experiences with family and friends but not everyone is so fortunate, so please reach out to others. Cortlandt is a family and as always we thank those taking care of us on the front lines: hospital workers, emergency service providers and so many others to thank. We will never forget their dedication and courage. Please go to our website and Facebook for important information. As always I say I love Cortlandt and all of you, stay safe and thank you.
