    HIGGINS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. HIGGINS. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize the career of D. Patrick Curley and his 50 years of service to western New York.

    Pat Curley was born and raised in Buffalo. After a stop at Boston College to earn a mathematics degree, he returned home and became an instructor at D'Youville and Canisius Colleges.

    In 1977, Pat started a consulting company where, for decades, he helped western New York businesses stay competitive in the global marketplace.

    Pat served on the board of the New York Power Authority and was elected to three terms on the Orchard Park Town Board. He has served in leadership positions for more than two dozen charitable organizations; and for the past 46 years, he has been a member of the Orchard Park Volunteer Fire Company, where he has responded to more than 5,000 emergency calls.

    Pat has had a varied career, but the common thread in his life and his work has been his love for his family and western New York.

    So, Pat, on behalf of a grateful community, please enjoy your well- earned retirement.
