Saratoga, NY— Following State Senator Patty Ritchie’s announcement of her retirement, Congresswoman Stefanik released the following statement:

“I have been proud to work side by side with Senator Patty Ritchie since my first day in office. Throughout that time, I’ve been honored to call Patty a friend. As an advocate for our farmers, Fort Drum, our correctional officers and hardworking North Country families, Patty has always placed the needs of her district first, above all else. Senator Ritchie’s decades of service have left an incredible mark in the North Country where she first served with distinction as St. Lawrence County Clerk and throughout the 48th Senate District.

On behalf of the North Country, I would like to thank Senator Ritchie for her leadership and dedication and wish her all the best in her next chapter.”
