Credit Where Credit Is Due
Just thinking today about the historic race for County Executive and County Comptroller. I know that it's only June and I have focused on these races enough to make a lot of people tired already but they are so important for the future of Ulster County. Just think on January 1st we will have an elected County Executive and an elected County Comptroller that is directly accountable to the people of Ulster County.
When we go to the polls this November and vote for our candidates, whoever they may be, we should all remember tha because of the leadership of John Parete, we are electing a County Executive and a County Comptroller. John Parete led the charge of implementing a County Executive form of government in Ulster County.
And in 2011 when we go to single member districts in the County legislature, making our county lawmakers more accountable to their constituents, you can again thank John Parete who led that effort as well.
While this was a joint effort, John Parete is very much responsible for bringing accountability to County Government.
