WHEREAS,  Individuals  who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS, Kevin O'Connor has given not only of his  time  and  energies
but also of his competence, intelligence and leadership and consequently
has been designated for special recognition; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Kevin O'Connor
upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition by Catholic

event at 11 North Pearl, Albany, New York, on Thursday, April 25,  2013;
and
  WHEREAS,  Catholic  Charities Caregivers Support Services (CCCSS) is a
not-for-profit agency of Catholic Charities of  the  Diocese  of  Albany
that  recognizes  human  need  at  all stages of life, responding to all
persons regardless of race, creed, or lifestyle, with  special  emphasis
on low-income and otherwise vulnerable individuals; and
  WHEREAS,  Under  the luminous direction of Kevin O'Connor, Tech Valley
Communications has previously been named by INC. MAGAZINE as one of  the
fastest growing "Inner City 100 Companies"; and
  WHEREAS,  Prior  to  his work at the telecommunications company, Kevin
O'Connor served as president of the Center for Economic Growth and had a
long-standing career in economic development; and
  WHEREAS, This outstanding man believes strongly in giving back to  his
community  and lends his expertise to many boards including AMRI Global,
First Niagara Bank's Regional Advisory Board, The College of Saint Rose,
and The University at Albany's School of Business Advisory Board,  among
others; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual  for  the  benefit  of  others  which  Kevin  O'Connor has displayed
throughout his life; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that  when  individ-
uals  of  such  noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to

recognition by Catholic Charities Caregivers Support Services; and be it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
