ALBANY — Anthony Adamo has stepped up as Southern Region President following the retirement of Billy Riccaldo, who served in the role for 11 years.
Adamo, who was executive vice president of the Southern Region, was sworn into office July 24 by CSEA President Danny Donohue.
Adamo steps up into this new role after 10 years as president of the SUNY New Paltz Local. In addition to his local and region roles, he has served for several years as chair of our Statewide Political Action Committee.
An electrician working on the SUNY New Paltz campus since age 19, Adamo became active with CSEA shortly after beginning his career with the state. He was a graduate of the first Applied Skills Trades Program class for electricians offered through the NYS/CSEA Partnership, an experience he said has motivated him to promote the many career development and advancement opportunities available through our union.
