Samantha Mullen Honored with Legislative Resolution
After the passing of our beloved Board member, Samantha Mullen, Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal was kind enough to introduce a Legislative Resolution paying tribute to the life and accomplishments of Samantha. The resolution “honors those citizens of the State of New York whose lifework and civic endeavor served to enhance the quality of life in their communities and the great State of New York.”
Assembly Member Rosenthal presented a framed copy of the resolution at Humane Lobby Day on April 17 in Albany to NYSHA Board members Patricia Valusek and Tracey Collins, who accepted it on behalf of Samantha’s family, who were unable to attend because of travel distance. Many in attendance were moved to tears by the touching words of Ms. Rosenthal, with whom Samantha had worked on numerous animal protection bills.
We are so pleased that the Legislature recognized and appreciated Samantha’s tireless, lifetime dedication to improving the lives of animals.
