Time to enact terms of office for IDA


There are long-term members on the IDA Board who have served our community with great distinction and who have helped to make our community a better place to live. The enactment of terms of office for the IDA board is in no way a negative reflection on their service to our community.

However, with our economy in the tank, we need to embrace the enthusiasm of new board members who may bring fresh perspectives on how best to stimulate economic development and job creation in Sullivan County. It’s the right thing to do.

Now more than ever is the time for us to embrace this modest change to the IDA board terms of office, rather than fearing such action. You can give me feedback at alansorensen@legislatorsorensen.com and 845/794-3000.
