February 1, 2021

CATSKILL — Vaccine distribution, infrastructure and broadband access topped the agenda when U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado met with Greene County officials last week.

Delgado, D-19, met Thursday with Legislature Chairman Patrick Linger, R-New Baltiore, Greene County Administrator Shaun Groden, Greene County Deputy Administrator Warren Hart, Greene County Highway Superintendent Scott Templeton and members of the Public Health and Emergency Operations

"Sen. [Kirsten] Gillibrand and I announced the reintroduction of our Rebuilding Rural America Act," Delgado said in a statement. "This legislation would help communities like Greene County repair their weather-damaged roads, revitalize rural broadband, and build their local economy back better. Projects like the stabilization of the Hudson River shoreline need investment from the federal government. I thank Greene County leaders for speaking with me and sharing their coronavirus crisis struggles. I will keep working to deliver critical funds to Greene County, and rural counties across New York's 19th congressional district.
