Legislator Ford joins Women in Government:

Encouraging the Next Generation

Legislator Denise Ford recently joined a panel of women who work in government at Adelphi University to share their experiences about the hard work, dedication, and strong work ethic that compelled them to give back to their community. After sharing their stories there was a question and answer session with the audience which included students from Adelphi University and Sacred Heart Academy High School, Garden City.
