State Sen. George Maziarz, R-Newfane, has announced that he has been named to presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Polish-American coalition. Maziarz joins the 11 member coalition on the National Advisory Board.
"As a proud Polish-American, I am honored to represent both the Western New York and Polish-American communities on this panel," Maziarz said. "Being selected among the entire nation to serve on this 11-member panel shows how strong the Polish American community is in Western New York, and that New York will have a voice come this election cycle. The Polish American community has a strong legacy of pride in their heritage and are great leaders in the business and science communities among others who came to this country for freedom and to pursue their dreams.
"The course that President Obama is taking this country on is different than the reasons our ancestors came to this country, and I urge other Polish Americans to join me in ensuring we get this country back on the right path."
Joining Maziarz on this committee are honorary chairpersons former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty; Sen. Lisa Murkowski; Congressman Dan Benishek; and National Advisory Board members former Michigan State House Majority Leader Rocky Raczkowski, Stanley Grot, Ambassador Aldona Wos, Ian Brzezinski, Retired Lt. General Ed Rowny, Steve Biegun and Blaise Misztal.
