Rolison: Chairman’s Address
Poughkeepsie, NY -Last night, I gave the Chairman’s Address at the swearing in of the Dutchess County Legislators for the 2014-2015 session. I am proud to continue to serve as Chairman of the Dutchess County Legislature and I look forward to leading this caucus.

As you can see, I am dedicated to fulfilling my promise from years past to collaborate with my colleagues across the aisle to create a fiscally sound county government. 2013 showed us that under the current conditions in Albany, county governments are forced to try to make the best of a dire situation.
I am running to be the next New York State Senator representing the 41st District in an effort to create real change in Albany. I will work tirelessly to fight the unfunded mandates that are choking our county’s budget.
