The Roundtable Hosts

MONDAY ROUNDTABLE
steve_homepage1[1]Orange County Executive, Steve Neuhaus
9 AM – 10 AM
 Start your Roundtable series every Monday with a first look at all things affecting Orange County. Steve and his guests take calls and answer your questions.
Orange County is located in the picturesque Hudson Valley, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of the top 20 places to visit in the world. From Sugar Loaf to Storm King, from Woodbury Common to West Point, Orange County offers a unique variety of history, culture, shopping, and entertainment, all in one place.
Our County’s location remains one of its strongest assets: bordering the Hudson River, situated 90 minutes from New York City, featuring the peaks of the Schunnemunk Mountains and the fertile soil of the Black Dirt Region. Our parks and recreation system is second to none, offering more than 3,300 acres where families and vacationers can golf, hike, and picnic. It’s a County that offers something for everyone – whether you live here, or are one of the thousands who visit each year. The residents have made a community here unlike any other in New York State. It’s a caring place where everyone is made to feel welcome, from a pancake breakfast to support the local American Legion, a 5K run to benefit charity, to a clothing drive to help a neighbor in need. That’s why Steve is proud to call Orange County his home.- Visit http://www.orangecountygov.com/.
