Golden sworn in for sixth term as State Senator
State Senator Marty Golden was sworn in for his sixth term during a lavish ceremony at Kingsborough Community College on Wednesday, January 30.
Nearly 100 local leaders from Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Gerritsen Beach and Sheepshead Bay came to the event in Manhattan Beach. Golden said he chose the location to show support for the trials and tribulations it suffered during Sandy. The neighborhood was just added last year to the 22nd Senate District represented by Golden.
Bay Ridge attorney Simon Shamoun, who served as master of ceremonies, noted that the state senator had tirelessly worked with the relief efforts during and after the storm.
Marty Golden was our voice when it felt like no one was listening, he said.
