State Senator Joseph Griffo will be attending the Inauguration of Donald Trump in Washington D.C. on Friday.

He says the inauguration of any president is always a special occasion to demonstrate the peaceful transfer of power in our democracy, and he's honored to have been invited to participate in such an historic event

Griffo will be joining a delegation from New York State.

Griffo says it's an exciting and significant opportunity, especially since we have not had a president from New York since Franklin D. Roosevelt.  "No matter who our president is, this is a moment for all of us to witness a ceremony every four years that symbolizes the enduring stability and strength of our great nation", said Griffo.
