We are honored to share that on December 4, 2023, Senator Joseph A. Griffo, 53rd Senate District, visited Golden Artist Colors to present the New York State Senate Empire Award in recognition of the company’s outstanding contributions and dedication to the growth, prosperity, and betterment of their community and New York State. The New York State Senate Empire Award is the Senate’s highest honor for small businesses, and is presented periodically to local businesses who exemplify a dedication not only to their customers and employees, but to their communities and New York State at large.
Senator Griffo has been a long-time supporter of small businesses, noting that “small businesses and farms have long been the backbone of our local economies” throughout New York State.
