PHOTO OF THE WEEK

In this file photo from Dec. 14, 2017, county Rep. Meg Kennedy, C-Hartwick, closely questions Gerry Benjamin, SUNY New Paltz vice president and expert on local government, at “County Manager v. County Executive,” a forum on professionalizing county government that came to fruition today (Dec. 4, 2019). The county board met and 10 a.m. today and voted to create the $150,000 job in Otsego County, one of only a handful of counties in the state that haven’t yet made that step.  In the front row are, from left, Oneonta Mayor Gary Herzig, Cooperstown Chamber then-President Danielle Henrici, and county Rep. Andrew Marietta, D-Cooperstown/Town of Otsego.  Second row, from left, are Otsego Chamber President Barbara Ann Heegan, Cooperstown Village Trustees Jim Dean and Richard Sternberg, and Sustainable Otsego Moderator Adrian Kuzminski.  Behind Sternberg is Vince Casale, county Republican chairman.  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
