County Executive

As your County Executive and on behalf of our residents, I'd like to welcome you to Orange County, located in the picturesque Hudson Valley, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of the top 20 places to visit in the world.

From Sugar Loaf to Storm King, from Woodbury Common to West Point, Orange County offers a unique variety of history, culture, shopping, and entertainment, all in one place.

Our County’s location remains one of its strongest assets: bordering the Hudson River, situated 90 minutes from New York City, featuring the peaks of the Schunnemunk Mountains and the fertile soil of the Black Dirt Region. Our parks and recreation system is second to none, offering more than 3,300 acres where families and vacationers can golf, hike, and picnic. It’s a County that offers something for everyone - whether you live here, or are one of the thousands who visit each year.

Our residents have made a community here unlike any other in New York State. It’s a caring place where everyone is made to feel welcome, from a pancake breakfast to support the local American Legion, a 5K run to benefit charity, to a clothing drive to help a neighbor in need.

That's why I am proud to call Orange County my home.

We look forward to seeing you again. Please check back often for important updates and events in our area.
