Garafola said they wanted to acknowledge Asch in public because “it’s you and people like you that no one ever sees .. you’re down in the basement, on the phones, out on the roads, and it’s a time for you and all the people behind you to be recognized. “ “You’ve taken us through Floyd, Hurricane Irene, Sandy and the October storm that was even worse.”

Ash thanked her team saying,”I don’t do this alone.It’s a team, and this wouldn’t have happened without this team effort.” She also thanked her family noting she wouldn’t have the time to volunteer without their support. See video here.
