ORANGEBURG – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus participated in the County Executive’s Forum with his counterpart from Rockland County, Ed Day, recently, at Dominican College in Orangeburg, N.Y.
“I enjoyed spending the morning with Ed Day and the guests at Dominican College,” Neuhaus said. “I appreciate Dominican College hosting the event and the Palisades Institute for being the sponsor. It was great to have a dialogue with the audience and interact with them in such an intimate setting. The event had a town hall meeting feel to it and I think the audience was interested and engaged in the topics County Executive Day and I discussed.”
Neuhaus and Day faced questions about, among other things, the economy, public projects, social services and taxes. They discussed the challenges they have faced and the successes they have realized since taking office in their respective counties.
The Palisades Institute was created in 1990 as part of Dominican College to serve business, government and not-for-profit organizations in Rockland and nearby counties. The Institute encourages professionals to integrate the concepts of Leadership, Quality and Ethics to achieve long-term success.
“This is the fourth County Executive’s Forum that Mr. Neuhaus has participated in,” said Kathleen Sullivan, Dominican College’s Chancellor. “His participation at the County Executive’s Forum has been welcomed and appreciated by the Palisades Institute audience. His belief in the importance of county government and its impact on the wellbeing of its citizens and its communities is evident in the initiatives and challenges that he has undertaken and continues to address.”
