In a unanimous vote on Resolution No. 29, the Ulster County Legislature made clear its belief that the Social Security Administration was making a tremendous error in removing the Federal office from Ulster County. With an estimated 34% of the Ulster County population receiving Social Security Income and an additional 5% receiving Supplemental Security Income in 2012, the expectation that this population travel to Poughkeepsie or Hudson for the completion of required Federal documentation is deemed unrealistic by the Ulster County Legislature.

The Ulster County Legislature joins today in the mourning of legendary singer, songwriter, and activist Pete Seeger. Pete’s music lives in the mountains of Ulster County. From Woodland Park and Woodstock to Kingston and New Paltz, the man and his five string banjo could bring people from all walks of life together. He may have opened Woodstock 1969 but his music never left these mountains. It has been heard at benefit concerts throughout the region, up to and until his health would no longer allow it.
