Kudos to Legislator Wayne Harris (R-Clintondale) for supporting the more than one million dollars in cuts that were proposed by County Administrator Mike Hein.
In an effort to protect the county against rising fuel costs and expected cuts in state aid, the Ulster County Legislature voted to trim more than $1 million from the county budget.
Unfortunately, every Republican except for Legislator Harris voted against the spending cuts. The Republicans voted against the cuts putting partisan politics ahead of the business of the people.
It's good to see that at least one Republican in the legislature is willing to stand up and do the right thing.
