Assemblywoman visits

PORT HENRY A road weary Teresa Sayward visited Moriah on Sept. 11. The assemblywoman, who represents the states 113th district, met with constituents in the afternoon before attending the Town of Moriah Board Meeting that night. In light of fuel costs, I think its important for me to get out and see my constituents who may have issues, she told Moriah trustees. Sayward said she maintains offices in Albany, Elizabethtown and Glens Falls, and shes willing to meet district residents at their convenience. Ill meet with people any time, she said. They just need to call for an appointment. Sayward can be contacted through her Albany office by calling 455-5565, her Glens Falls office at 792-4546 or her Elizabethtown office at 873-3803. While in Moriah, Sayward praised the town board for its work on the new health center project. The town board took a leadership role to be certain the people of Moriah receive quality health care, she said. A new $1.2 million health center is now under construction at the Moriah Industrial Park on Plank Road. It is expected to be open this year. The new health center will be owned by the town and operated by Hudson Headwaters Health Network. Town officials also had praise for Sayward. As elected officials and constituents, we appreciate all you do for us, Supervisor Tom Scozzafava told the assemblywoman. Trustee Richard Carpenter presented Sayward with a town of Moriah bicentennial T-shirt. Sayward then excused herself from the meeting. If I leave now I can get home and see my husband a few minutes, said Sayward, who lives in Willsboro. Ive been on the road since 6 a.m., and Im tired.
