Hinchey honors Romalin Deyo
Raymond Pignone reports for Columbia-Greene Media that every member of the Legislative Women’s Caucus during Women’s History Month every year recognize an outstanding woman from their district for exemplary character and leadership and state Sen. Michelle Hinchey chose Greene County Veterans Service Agency Director Michelle Romalin Deyo this year. Hinchey said, “Michelle has served and protected our country with great courage and upon returning home from military service has devoted her life to supporting our veterans here at home, changing lives and strengthening our communities in that work. Michelle makes history as the only woman to lead a countywide veterans agency in Senate District 41, and the Legislative Women’s Caucus’ Women’s History Month recognition is the perfect opportunity to ensure that her legacy of service is rightfully acknowledged and celebrated.” Romalin Deyo served in Operation Desert Storm, Operation Desert Shield, Operation Southern Watch, and the NATO Operation Deny Flight. Now she oversees the Greene County Veterans Transportation Program. She is also an EMT with Town of Coxsackie Ambulance, and a volunteer firefighter with Cairo Hose Company.
