A Strong Record of Accomplishment
Mike Hein's first three years as Ulster County Executive has been both historic and full of great accomplishments. It is no wonder why Republicans can't find a candidate to run against him and why some fellow Democrats are envious at his successes.
Before taking office Hein was the Ulster County administrator, developing budgets for the legislature that were fiscally responsible and gained him a reputation as a budget wizard.
As Executive it has really come full circle, not only has he continued to develop great budgets that have NOT increased taxes but he has been a leader in fighting for the environment, creating jobs, and promoting Ulster County as a tourism destination. Mike Hein has also made it a top priority to make Ulster County the healthiest county in New York State, his health director, Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is top notch.
County Executive Hein has fought corruption and the good ol' boy politics that for too long have kept Ulster County at a stand still. Whether it was revamping the health department or replacing and holding accountable people that were taking advantage of Ulster County taxpayers, Hein has really stepped up to the plate making sure every decision is made in the best interest of his bosses, all 181,000 of them.
Another four years of Hein's leadership would be welcome in my opinion, Heinsight has proved indeed to be 20/20
