“With the unprecedented needs and challenges we have faced over the last couple of years, I am so proud and inspired by how our community has pulled together,” says Mayor Paterson. “Now is the time to recognize the individuals who have gone above and beyond, the people who show up when things get tough and the people who are always giving back to the community. I encourage you to take the time to nominate these people so we can give them the recognition they deserve.”
