GOSHEN – Orange County Legislator Michael Amo (I-1) may be the lone holdout when lawmakers vote to fund the county’s Valley View nursing home for a full year in 2014.
County Executive Edward Diana only allocated funding for the first four months of the year and Amo, who is chairman of the Health Committee, which has already voted in favor of full year funding, said given the fact that a new county executive and legislature will be coming into office in January, the county should investigate a new model to operate Valley View.
The Orange County executive Thursday welcomed a new congressional member who represents the region. They say they agreed to work together to advance economic development in Orange County. Democratic Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney and Republican Orange County Executive Edward Diana agreed that investments in agriculture and local economic development projects are vital to creating jobs and moving Orange County forward.
