Governor's Regional Council Concept Has Proven Effective
In 2011, when Gov. Andrew Cuomo first took office, he developed a new way for the state to attract businesses and grow the economy. He believed we could make better economic decisions at the local and regional level. Governor Cuomo created ten Regional Economic Development Council (REDCs) and asked us to chair the council for the Mid-Hudson Region, which we have proudly done for the past six years.
