Ann Fanizzi was never involved in any scheme or had any agenda other than to save and preserve a big slice of Putnam’s history. I watched as she tirelessly worked to save the farm, slated for townhouse development. She has put her money where her mouth is, time after time. … This farm can be a jewel in the crown of Putnam and that was Ms. Fanizzi’s aim as well as the aim of all who fought to save it.”
