- Editor's Note: Each town is accepting the nominations for a "Woman of Distinction" award and if you'd like to officially nominate someone, you can contact the Yorktown town supervisor's office at 914-962-5722, ext. 201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The article has been updated since it's original publication to include more women.
Senator Greg Ball (R,C–Patterson) is accepting nominations to honor a woman from each town, village and city in the 40th Senate District.
Towns, villages and cities district-wide are currently in the process of selecting their nominees and will eventually nominate one person from each town. If you would like to suggest someone in Yorktown, you can contact the Yorktown town board. Nominations are due by Feb. 1.
The Women of Distinction will hold a ceremony and reception on Friday, March 30, 2012 to welcome its first class of honorees, recognizing one woman of distinction from each town.
Take our poll below (which is in no particular order) and add your own suggestions for a Woman of Distinction in the comments below.
*NOTE: This is not an official poll. The town board will be sending nominations to Senator Ball's office.
