“Teddy Roosevelt would have been proud!”
Those were the words of Kevin Byrne, president of the Putnam Young Republicans when the group recently honored County Clerk Dennis Sant for his position to protect the privacy and safety of Putnam residents by refusing to provide the names and addresses of licensed gun owners to the Westchester based Journal News, which had intended to publish the information.
“Dennis, like Teddy Roosevelt, is an American hero for standing up for what was right,” said Byrne.
The event attracted more than 100 to the Putnam National Golf Club in Mahopac including Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, who also lauded Sant for “staying true to his oath of office.”
The organization welcomes registered members of the GOP aged 18- 40. Byrne said associate memberships and “Young at Heart” memberships for those over 40 also exist.
