Libby Pataki Set to Push Tourism in Bicentennial Year
Would replace Valerie Hickman in tourism promotion
Putnam's Director of Tourism Valerie Hickman is stepping down and likely will be replaced by former First Lady Libby Pataki of Garrison. Hickman, 76, and a resident of Mahopac, is suffering from lung cancer and undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments. On Thursday evening, the Legislature's Economic Development Committee held a special meeting to accept Hickman's resignation.
