Sustainability initiatives and federal funding: Delgado and county officials

SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY – U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) met with Sullivan County officials to discuss sustainability initiatives and federal funding. Rep. Antonio Delgado spoke virtually with Sullivan County Legislature Chairman Robert A. Doherty, county manager Josh Potosek, and sustainability coordinator Heather Brown about Sullivan County farming, infrastructure and small business programs.

“Sullivan County's sustainability initiatives strengthen our local economy and protect our planet,” said Rep. Antonio Delgado. “I thank chairman Doherty, manager Potosek, and sustainability coordinator Brown for speaking with me about their work to promote economic development and agricultural growth. Emergency COVID-19 funding is not enough -- Congress must provide robust federal investment to build rural areas back better. My bill, the Rebuild Rural Act, would deliver dollars directly to counties like Sullivan to finance local programs.”

“We were grateful for Congressman Delgado’s time and the enthusiasm he showed for our ideas and initiatives,” said Doherty. “This legislature and county administration are focused on moving Sullivan County forward, and that includes starting an ambitious composting program, greatly expanding our trails system, and establishing and growing a thriving industrial hemp industry. The congressman’s support, both personally and as an advocate for funding, is vital and very much appreciated.”
