County Executive Molinaro with Larry Hertz and Legislator Chairman Rolison

“Congratulations to Larry Hertz as he retires after 36 years as journalist for the Poughkeepsie Journal.  Over the years, Larry has chronicled the good and the bad, the happy and the sad stories that have been part of our community.   His work, particularly his weekly columns, have reminded us about the wonderful diversity of the Dutchess County and its residents.   He has shared the stories about the people and organizations that make a difference in people lives and in doing so, he has made a profound impact in Dutchess County.

In recognition of his work and his contributions, I declare today, Friday, April 13th, 2012 to be Larry Hertz Day in Dutchess County.”
