Focus When County Reps Meet

The congressman discussed broadband, the opioid crisis and energy challenges facing the region. Also at the meeting, a resolution was passed supporting the goals of the “Justice for Gillian” campaign, and Assembly John Salka, R-Brookfield, briefed reps on issues in Albany that will have a local impact.

WITH 6 DAYS TO ELECTION…

County Board OKs

Nepotism Policy,

Fills Ethics Board

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury? Not quite. Due to concern over a perceived online threat, the county Board of Representatives convened in the jury dock in Courtroom #1 this morning instead of their usual chambers.

COOPERSTOWN – With six days to go to a briskly contested Election Day, the Otsego County Board of Representatives today acted on two ethics questions it has struggled with for months, even years:

  • One, appointing three members to a county Board of Ethics, created in the early 1990s but never populated.
  • Two, adopting a nepotism policy that limits situations in which close relatives can work for other close relatives in Otsego County government.
