Mayor Yepsen Receives VFW Distinguished Citizen Achievement Award

Written by Staff Report
The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States District 3 recently presented Saratoga Springs Mayor Joanne Yepsen with the “Distinguished Citizen Achievement Award” for her years of dedicated support and service to our veterans’ community. District 3 Commander Gene Ratigliano said: “Joanne Yepsen has always worked very closely with the Veterans of Foreign Wars on many projects that were instrumental in ensuring veterans in and around Saratoga County are represented in all matters dealing with veteran issues. She has a special place in her heart for veterans and for what they do and have done for our country and is most deserving of this award.” Mayor Yepsen served on the Veterans Advisory Committee of the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors, was involved with restoring the Veterans War Memorial in Congress Park, and was instrumental in moving the Guardian House for homeless women veterans into a more secure position to serve this deserving population. The mayor also founded the NYS Coalition for Women Veterans, which resulted in a collaboration of state and county veterans counselors, VA representatives, and veterans’ organizations. “I am extremely honored and humbled to receive this award.” Mayor Yepsen said. “Helping our veterans has been, is, and will remain a priority for me moving forward.”
