North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jen DeSena was recently recognized as a state Senate Woman of Distinction during the annual Women of Distinction ceremony hosted in Albany.
DeSena was nominated by State Sen. Jack Martins, who represents the 7th Senate District, which encompasses the entirety of the Town of North Hempstead, the City of Glen Cove, and parts of the Town of Oyster Bay.
“Thank you to Supervisor Jennifer DeSena for being our 2023 Woman of Distinction. As a strong professional working mother, Jen serves as a role model balancing the many challenges so many women face today. As Town Supervisor, Jen has proven herself to be a leader with a strong backbone, driven by common-sense, and a person with a good heart. She cares. Our community is better because of Jen’s commitment to making things better, her volunteerism, and her strong work ethic,” said Martins.
“I am so proud and honored to have been nominated for this recognition by Senator Martins, and I want to thank him for this tremendous honor. Since even before I became town supervisor, I have dedicated my life to the service of others and the promotion of volunteerism as a way for adults and youths to improve self-esteem and mental health,” DeSena said. “Since I took office, I have led with these ideals in mind, and worked to make the Town of North Hempstead a better and more accountable place for our residents. With this honor, I am inspired to continue to lead, to continue to be an advocate, and to continue to serve.”
