Former Congressman John Hall is slated to receive the 8th Jim Gordon Award for Excellence in Public Service next month from the Putnam Valley Democratic Committee. The award is named for Gordon, a former Putnam County legislator who died in 2003.
According to the committee, the “award continues to honor his (Gordon’s) dedication as a public servant who served both the town and the county in many capacities. The award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to Putnam Valley through public service in an elected or appointed position.”
Hall, a Democrat, served two terms in the House of Representatives before losing to Rep. Nan Hayworth, R-Mount Kisco, in 2010.
