Assemblywoman Galef Highlights Efforts to Ensure a Successful Environmental and Economic Future for Hudson River Towns on Her “Dear Sandy” TV Show
(April 17, 2013) The latest installment of Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s television program “Dear Sandy” highlights the efforts made by Scenic Hudson and Historic Hudson River Town’s to revitalize and improve towns along the Hudson River. Galef is joined by Andy Bicking, Director of Public Policy for Scenic Hudson and Jerry Faiella, Executive Director of Historic Hudson River Towns. Bicking and Faiella discuss with Galef ways to develop and improve the waterfront in an environmentally friendly way.
Much of Galef’s district is located along the Hudson, and her guests represent two groups who are leading activities to revitalize the economy and create environmental improvements in these areas. Tourism is a growing industry in the mid-Hudson region and working to improve local parks would aid in the success of the tourism industry. Two projects along the Hudson were specifically mentioned, the Hudson Fjord Hike/Bike Trail and the Historic Sing Sing Museum. Both will provide new tourism opportunities along the Hudson for their communities. In addition, Bicking and Faiella discuss steps that should be taken to protect people and property along the river from future natural disasters, following a few years of particularly strong storms in the Hudson River Valley.
“I am pleased that Andy and Jerry joined me on my television show to discuss issues that are so important to many of the people I represent. The Hudson River is a major asset to my Assembly District and more must be done to take advantage of all it has to offer and preserve it for the future. I look forward to continue working with these two organizations on ideas we discussed on my show,” said Galef.
