Brescia, re-elected Orange Legislature chairman, wants ‘something done with Camp LaGuardia’

Brescia - another year as chairman

GOSHEN – Orange County Legislator Stephen Brescia was selected by fellow lawmakers on Thursday to be chairman for another year, making him the second longest serving leader in the body’s history.

Brescia is eager to continue focusing on supporting new infrastructure projects, increasing public safety issues and more SUNY Orange challenge items that need to be addressed among other issues.

“We’d like to see something done with Camp LaGuardia, with the property there put back on the tax rolls, whether it’s Great Wolf Lodge, or some industrial development, or some other development," Brescia said. "We’ve been sitting on that property a long time and we need to put it to use. We’d like to see the Heritage Trail completed, the next section through Middletown, and that’s exciting, more bridges…”

As Brescia was sworn in again as chairman, Sheriff Carl DuBois was sworn in for his fifth term as the county's chief law enforcement official.

Orange County Surrogate Court Judge Robert Onofry was also sworn serve this year as he has reached the mandatory age restriction to serve. He said he is extremely proud and honored by his accomplishments, and although it is a bittersweet transition, he was happy to have done all he could.
