    The Turning Point District of the Twin Rivers Council, Good Scout Award honoree this year is Assemblyman Dan Stec. While in the Assembly, Dan has established himself as a champion of transparency and ethics reform, successfully pushing through a Constitutional Amendment that would allow corrupt public officials to be stripped of their taxpayer funded pensions. He also helped guide three Adirondack Park related Constitutional Amendments to successful passage. Additionally, he has been striving to help solve the critical issues New York State faces – aging infrastructure, high speed broadband internet access, high taxes, job growth and education reform. He currently serves as the Vice-Chair of the Assembly Minority Conference, the Ranking Minority Member of the Assembly’s Committee on
    Environmental Conservation and also sits on the Assembly’s Economic Development, Local Governments,Social Services, and Tourism Committees.

    The event will take place on Thursday, May 9th, at The Great Escape Lodge. The reception will begin at 6:00 pm, with the dinner and program at 7:00. Funds raised for this event will help to ensure ongoing support of our local Boy Scout organization. Registration and information are available at: www.trcscouting.org/wakgsad
