Betty McLean Honored by Community

Betty McLean (former Chairwoman of the Town of Wilna) was honored tonight at the
Town of Wilna American Legion for over 50 yrs of work electing good Democrats to office. Tonight’s event was a who’s who of progressive leaders from across the North Country.

“Betty McLean is someone that will work tirelessly to make sure the Democratic Party is heard and reckoned with.” Said Jefferson County Democratic Chair Sean Hennessey. Her success’s can be seen on at the local level as well as on the National Stage. Betty has seen it all and although I’ll never be able to fill her shoes but I’ll do my best to follow in her footsteps” said Paul Smith Town Supervisor of the Town of Wilna and current chairman of the Town of Wilna Democratic Committee. Brian McGrath expressed his thanks for Betty and her life work and pressed the crowd to give Betty an early Birthday present by electing a Democrat for the first time ever to represent 122nd Assembly district.
In Betty’s speech (in normal fashion) she thanks all the people that have made her success a reality. She especially thanked all in attendance and urged them to continue the fight to make the North Country a more progressive and inclusive community.

Attending tonight event were past and current Chairs of the Jefferson County Democratic Committee, representative’s for Senator Darrel Aubertine and Assemblywoman Addie J Russell, Brian McGrath (Candidate for the NYS Assembly - 122nd District), Sheriff John Burns, County Treasurer Nancy Brown, Town/Village elected officials, Town Chairs from the Jefferson County Democratic Committee and many from the community that wanted to thank Betty for her Service.

Thank you Betty for all you have done and continue to do for our community!!
