Posted January 8, 2020

ALBANY, N.Y. – “I would like to extend my congratulations to Legislator David Donaldson for his election as Chair of the Ulster County Legislature as well as to all new and returning members upon their swearing in for the 2020 session. Over the past six months, we have been able to make significant strides for all the residents of our County. Together, as Team Ulster County we have taken bold steps to protect our environment, tackle the opioid epidemic, expand economic opportunity, ensure justice for all residents, and make County government more responsive and responsible for everyone. I would also like to thank Legislator Tracey Bartels for her leadership during last year. I look forward to continued partnership with Chairman Donaldson and the newly sworn-in members of the Ulster County Legislature to serve the 180,000 residents of Ulster County and deliver on our promise to ensure County Government works for all.”
