The Legislature approved a Resolution of Appreciation for retiring director Steve Griffin, after 40 years of service with Foodnet. The Legislature praises Griffin as “a compassionate and dedicated leader, known for his integrity, his competence, and his unfailing courtesy to all,” and that he “leaves a legacy of service, caring and generosity that has made this community a stronger and better place,” improving the health and quality of life for older adults in Tompkins County.
Mr. Griffin called in a real privilege to serve in this capacity and to work closely with the County Office for the Aging and others throughout the community. “We have a really wonderful working relationship with county government and community partners,” he said. “Together, we’ve really achieved so much.”
