Sen. Little does big things for public safety

To the editor:

Two recent milestones in public safety are a direct result of New York state's 45th District Sen. Betty Little's tireless efforts. I write to acknowledge those efforts and express appreciation for her leadership.

Last month, every building department in the great state of New York received a complete set of the updated building codes. Sen. Little is the primary reason this happened.

Sen. Little has a public safety vision that originates from her absolute highest regard and concern for "her" constituents. The senator's support has insured that every municipality has the tools to achieve a greater level of building and fire safety. Sen. Little has always worked tirelessly to insure building fire and emergency responders are provided for and protected.

In fact, her record will show she has done MORE that ANYONE to promote uniform building and fire safety standards.

Her other recent, great accomplishment is a new law that includes CO (carbon monoxide) detectors in commercial buildings.

In the past, she would ask, "How is it that people are not protected at work? That can't be right."

Her tenacity pushed forth legislation to protect all workers. The new law guarantees that from now on all workers will be warned of CO danger and safe from that harm while at work.

In short, this senator's life work and her wisdom will save people's lives.

There is no higher level of service.

This is a public servant that puts public safety first! The honorable senator has not asked for, nor has she been given any public credit for these enormous contributions to safer communities.

Therefore, now please be aware how much Sen. Little has done on your behalf.

Thank you, Sen. Little. I am proud to live "safely" in your district.
