W&L Junior Attends N.Y. State of State Address

Tom Sanford, a Washington and Lee University junior from New York City, was a special guest at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2012 State of the State address, in Albany, on Jan. 4, 2012.

Sanford, a politics major, was the guest of Assemblyman Daniel P. Losquadro, a Republican from Long Island and the brother of Washington and Lee alumnus Steve Losquadro, of the Class of 1986.

As part of his trip to Albany, Sanford met with Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, as well as the chief of staff for New York State Republican Party Chairman Edward Cox.

Sanford, a member of the New York delegation for Washington and Lee’s 2012 Mock Republican Convention, visited with Losquardo during the 2011 legislative session to discuss his role in the Mock Convention. During this visit, Sanford once again visited the assembly chamber, where he joined members on the floor at the opening of session.
