I had a great time at the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce Breakfast of Champions this morning before heading up to Albany for session. It was nice to see so many community members and businesses come together.
Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park's ground breaking ceremony for their new elevator that will connect the Poughkeepsie Waterfront to the center of the Walkway. It is heartening to see the Walkway Over the Hudson continue to grow and have a positive impact on the City of Poughkeepsie and surrounding communities. This is another great step towards connecting our neighborhoods and business centers to spur our local economy and create jobs.
Thank you to the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity to sit down and talk with a really wonderful group of young people from Poughkeepsie High School. They had really great input and questions.
I just presented Charlie North, President and CEO of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce with a New York State Senate Resolution in recognition of their Balloon Festival and continued service to our community.
