As Hein Goes, So Goes NY State
Mike Hein, the Democratic candidate for County Exec has taken a little heat from GOP leaders over the last week or so for making some tough decisions in regards to the Ulster County budget. Glenn Noonan, said these cuts are to get Hein elected County Executive, nothing more.
No, Mr. Noonan, the cuts where done by an administrator that recognized that we are in tough times as a County. A leader that realizes that it is his responsibility to make the tough decisions and do what is best for Ulster County.
Mike Hein continues to lead the way and show the same foresight as many current county executives on both sides of the aisle have shown throughout NY. Below you will see a few articles that deal with other counties facing similar problems and making the same tough decisions as Mike Hein did.
As they say, as Hein goes, so goes New York state.
