“I’d really like to see more veterans get involved in their communities in elections. It’s very important. I know I am the only elected official in the City of Middletown and have been for a long time,” he said.

The annual joint Middletown-Wallkill Veterans Day service was held at the Elk’s Club to say ‘thank you’ to veterans.
