Hein Featured Speaker at NYS Democratic Convention

Ulster County Executive Mike Hein spoke yesterday at the 2011 New York State Democratic Convention held in Suffolk County. Executive Hein was invited to speak aside Governor Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Schneiderman and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli on behalf of all New York State Counties regarding the many issues currently facing county governments as well as the importance of all governments working together to better serve the people of New York State. The County Executive was chosen to represent County governments due to his many innovative solutions and reform minded approach to government.

“I was honored to be take part in such a prestigious event,” said Hein. “I will continue to work to coordinate efforts between state and local government to best serve the people of Ulster County.”

At 2010 Democratic Convention, County Executive Hein was personally asked by Senator Charles E. Schumer to deliver his nominating speech as a representative of the Senator’s upstate constituency.

Perhaps he was chosen because he is one of two Democratic county executives in the state.
