2011 Predictions

There will be some interesting changes this year in the County.  The majority and minority may find themselves in a position where they have to make friendly amendments because of a third party with bi-partisan membership. 

The good ole boys and girls will find they have to retire or take up new careers because of term limits.  Sorry but there is a lot to be said for new blood.

The first female Legislative chairperson will be appointed this year.

Political upsets with the new redistricting and twenty-three member legislature.

Precident setting changes to the Safety Net program and accountability by management so no further financial fiascos occur like the 12401 and Sunoco Broadway events.

Local level tax reform so the burden of supporting Ulster County doesn't fall soley on property owners.

Environmental reform with new Committee people and perhaps all Committees will have new chairmen.
