Statement from County Executive Pat Ryan on the Organizational Meeting of the Ulster County Legislature

Posted January 10, 2022

“I would like to extend my congratulations to Legislator Tracey Bartels for her election as Chair of the Ulster County Legislature, as well as to members of the Legislative leadership team, and to all new and returning Legislators upon their swearing-in for the 2022 session. I’m looking forward to partnering with Chairwoman Bartels and the rest of the Legislature in service to the 180,000 residents of Ulster County — from continuing our proactive efforts to blunt the current COVID-19 surge, to addressing our housing crisis and expanding mental health services, all while holding the line on taxes and keeping Ulster County affordable. Now more than ever, it’s essential that our government continue to work together as a team in order to deliver for our residents. I am excited and optimistic that we will continue to do so, building on our already strong partnership in 2022 and beyond.”
