New York State Assemblyman Dennis H. Gabryszak (D-Cheektowaga) was one of 79 legislators selected by New York Farm Bureau to receive the “Circle of Friends” award, due to his support and dedication to Western New York’s farming and agriculture in 2010.
“Agriculture is an integral part of the New York State economy, especially upstate,” Assemblyman Gabryszak said. “This is a very prestigious award and I’m honored to be recognized by the New York Farm Bureau for supporting their cause.”
Assemblyman Gabryszak was also honored in 2009 with the “Circle of Friends” award.
“Along with many of my colleagues in the Western New York Delegation, I will continue to raise awareness to support farming and agriculture issues,” Gabryszak said.
The Farm Bureau is New York State’s single largest general farm advocacy organization. Each year, it awards lawmakers based upon their voting records on legislation that affects New York agriculture and farming.
