DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Dutchess County seniors turned out in force Thursday to listen to County Executive Marc Molinaro during the annual "Ask the County Executive" session at the Office for the Aging.
During the event, seniors came armed with questions important to them that ranged from taxes to transportation issues, said Office of the Aging Director Todd Tancredi.
"Executive Molinaro is so great at putting people at ease that it's like a talk among friends," Tancredi.
Some of the issues discussed during the meeting include the 2018 budget, transportation needs of seniors and events important to the elderly. Molinaro was able to help address some concerns by informing attendees of services already available such as the Dial-A-Ride program and the Friends of Seniors.
He also filled them in on local road and bridge work, the tax rate, and upcoming events.
Also dropping in for a visit during the event was Sen. Sue Serino, who discussed events happening statewide and locally.
