I am very happy to report that the Town/Village of Harrison has been named one of the safest communities in New York state.

When considering a move, knowing how safe different communities are is very important. has compiled a list of the safest towns and cities using information based on FBI violent crime statistics and research data.

Thursday, Oct. 6, is Organ Donor Enrollment Day.

Registration is now open and teams have already started registering and planning ways to sign up as many New Yorkers as possible.

Just one organ donor can save up to eight lives.

I encourage all who are interested in this lifesaving effort to sign up.
