    STEFANIK asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) Ms. STEFANIK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor two giants of our Adirondack community. George Canon and Fred Monroe have led distinguished careers fighting to protect their constituents over the past quarter century. I had the honor of celebrating their public service at a meeting of the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages just this past weekend, a critical organization to our region that they helped create.

    Fred Monroe has been the supervisor of the town of Chester since 1992, overseeing a cultural, commercial, and environmental revitalization of the town and being one of our foremost leaders on the issue of combating invasive species.

    George Canon has been serving the town of Newcomb as supervisor for 13 terms, working to preserve the town's history and architectural treasures, including the Santanoni Great Camp.

    Mr. Speaker, these two men are true godfathers of the Adirondacks, and it is my pleasure to honor them and celebrate their distinguished careers today.
