An elected official in the Hudson Valley is behind a movement to put New York front and center of the women’s suffrage centennial in 2020. For starters, she has worked to ensure that New York has a new day to commemorate, in just a few weeks.

The state Senate and Assembly Tuesday adopted a resolution, calling on the governor to proclaim July 1 this year as the “Spirit of 1776” Wagon Day in the State of New York. Here’s Susan Zimet, founder of Votes for Women 2020, the non-profit organization planning suffrage centennial events in 2017 and 2020.
