Rep. Maurice D. Hinchey

Mr. Speaker, before we adjourn for the year, I wanted to take a moment to honor Howard St. John, who is stepping down from the chairmanship of Ulster Savings Bank after a long and very rewarding career there. Howard has had, in a sense, many careers--as a District Attorney, President and member of many professional and charitable boards and associations, and as a very successful local businessman. Through his many endeavors and successes he has never lost his warmth and generosity or his personal touch with regular people. He has contributed to the health and well being of numerous families throughout the Hudson Valley, helping them to realize their dreams in many different ways. I join my friends back home in saluting him upon his retirement from Ulster Savings Bank and wish him the very best in what I hope will be a long and fruitful retirement.
