Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus delivered his fifth State of the County address to a large audience on Wednesday night at the Emergency Services Center auditorium.
The County Executive’s address highlighted several accomplishments of the past year, as well as his vision for the future.
Neuhaus was introduced on Wednesday night by Town of Montgomery and Village of Maybrook Police Chief Arnold “Butch” Amthor. Amthor was shot in the upper left shoulder last May while responding to a domestic altercation in the Town of Montgomery.
“I am very glad to report that Orange County is continuing on the path to fiscal security and economic vitality,” Neuhaus said. “My administration has worked hard and been very progressive which has resulted in a healthy economy and a renewed spirt of optimism. Orange County is stronger than ever and I will continue to work with Chairman Brescia and the Legislature, our County Departments and the business community to ensure that this positive progress continues.”
Added Chairman of the Legislature Steve Brescia: “We have made significant progress working with County Executive Neuhaus. He understands government and how to develop relationships, not only with the Legislature, but with local and state government as well. Projects that have been talked about for years are getting done under the County Executive’s administration and I look forward to working with him and his team for the next four years as we continue to move Orange County forward.”
