E-Mail Newsletter – July 14, 2015

Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15 at 2 p.m., you are invited to join us for a ceremony to honor Lieutenant Colonel Todd J. Clark at Guilderland Town Hall (5209 Western Turnpike, Guilderland). A portion of State Route 146 in the Town of Guilderland, Albany County will be renamed the "Lieutenant Colonel Todd J. Clark Memorial Highway" (S.2290/A.2131) - the renamed highway begins at the intersection of State Route 20 and State Route 146, and continues north to Lydius Street. Lt. Col. Clark, who grew up in Guilderland, was killed in action on June 8, 2013 during an attack at close range while serving as an advisor to the Afghan National Army.

The highway renaming was a result of legislation I sponsored in the Assembly and Senator George Amedore sponsored in the Senate. Governor Cuomo signed the bill on July 2, 2015.

It is an honor to have sponsored this bill to commemorate the extraordinary service and ultimate sacrifice of Guilderland's Lieutenant Colonel Todd Clark. Senator Amedore, Guilderland Town Supervisor Kenneth Runion, Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy, and Lt. Col. Clark's father Raymond "Jack" Clark, COL (Ret.), U.S. Army will be on hand for remarks. Following the remarks, there will be a reception at 3 p.m. at the Guilderland Elks Lodge (3867 Carman Road, Schenectady).
