NYS Senator Diane Savino Talks About the Responsibility of being "The First"

As a former Staten Islander, I take a great interest in seeing Staten Island women move into leadership positions. Last fall, Debi Rose became the first African American woman elected to the NYC Council. And, Diane Savino is the first female state senator from the Island. My pleasure grew as I listened to Senator Savino's  comments to the NYS State Senate on Women's History Month. (Just under 3 minutes)

And, if you're unfamiliar with Senator Savino's comments on her vote on the gay marriage bill, do watch the video here. (about 7 minutes)
