New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. presented certificates signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo that create new state license plates intended to serve as a remembrance of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He is pictured with Robert I. Ross, left, a Hampton Bays resident and former Southampton Town deputy supervisor, who was a strong supporter of the legislation, and Elsa Gronlund Strong, sister of the late Linda Gronlund, a Sag Harbor native who died on United Flight 93 on 9/11. The license plate legislation was sponsored by Mr. Thiele and New York State Senator Kenneth P. LaValle. Photo courtesy of Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele’s office.
