Marcus J. Molinaro was elected as Dutchess County’s 7th County Executive in November 2011. Upon taking office, he sought to create a comprehensive economic development strategy, one that more aggressively attracts and retains private sector companies and jobs. Since 2012, Marc and his administration have transformed the way County Government does business – making it smaller, smarter, and more effective. Marc has been leader on Open Space Protection and Farmland Preservation, an advocate to preserve the Hudson River Valley Greenway and a supporter of the Greenway Compact. In 2015, Marc launched “Think Differently,” an initiative to ensure equal access and service, along with greater outreach, to those living with special needs and developmental disabilities. Now, nearly 100 communities across New York are implementing the “Think Differently” principles.
