Chairman Robert Rolison (R-Poughkeepsie) announced today that the Dutchess County Legislature continues to seek individuals who wish to serve as legislative appointments on various public boards, authorities, and committees. Interviews for the Veteran Affairs Committee, Environmental Management Council, and Citizen Advisory Committee on Sex Offender Management will be held soon.

"In order to build a better Dutchess County we must work together,” said Rolison. “These appointments to various important and prestigious boards, authorities, and committees are crucial to the enhancement of the overall quality of life for all Dutchess County residents. With your help we can find fresh, innovative ways to tackle challenges and help our neighbors in need. We have already filled quite a few positions but, since it’s a fluid process, there remains a need for more county residents to step forward and offer their time, energy, and ideas."

The Dutchess County Legislature will consider applicants for positions on the following boards, authorities, and committees in the near future:

Anyone who wishes to be considered for any of these positions should provide to the Dutchess County Legislature a resume and a brief letter of intent on or before the specified due date. It is important to remember that some of these positions are highly competitive and may require unique knowledge of particular subject areas.
