Best in Business 2021

We are proud to announce a brand-new initiative this year in honor of our extraordinary local businesses. This past year, we witnessed businesses continue to proudly serve our communities with dedication, despite facing incredible challenges. This has inspired us to launch Best in Business 2021 to recognize these amazing local establishments.

We are looking to highlight businesses that demonstrate their dedication to the people of the 94th Assembly District. These businesses would be described as having excellent customer service, curating valuable relationships within their communities, and going above and beyond for their customers. If you have a local business/businesses you feel fit this description, you can use the submission form below to submit your vote to recognize and honor them within their respective categories.

Voting is open exclusively to local residents in the 94th Assembly District for the towns of Carmel (including the hamlet of Mahopac/Mahopac Falls), Patterson, Putnam Valley, Yorktown, Somers, and Southeast (including the village of Brewster). Each resident may only vote once per category and will be automatically entered in a drawing to receive a donated gift card from one of several local businesses. Voting will end May 31.

The categories are as follows:
