Election Spotlight – Rockland County

This week we examine the race for County Executive in Rockland County, which is the smallest county by area outside of New York City. While it may be small in size, it has over 300,000 residents living in five towns and nineteen villages.

This is the first time in 20 years that no incumbent is running for reelection in the County. It provides a perfect time for the County launch on a new path after years of fiscal issues.

    Election Spotlight – Montgomery County

    This week we look at several races in Montgomery County.

    2013 will be the first time ever that residents of the county vote for a County Executive and a County Legislature. Last year voters approved a change to the County Charter that eliminated the board of supervisors and replaced it with an Executive and Legislature. CSEA was supportive of those changes and is looking forward to working with the new Executive and Legislature.
