It's time for "Meet the Mayors"

One of the best parts of my job is being involved with the community.

The involvement comes in a variety of ways -- talking with people on the phone, receiving emails and letters, partnering with local organizations, attending community events, and serving on a variety of area boards.

As a member of the Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce board of directors, I've gotten the chance to meet an amazing group of people, I've seen first-hand how hard people are working to promote and develop the Capital Region, and I've been able to attend many interesting programs that have benefited me professionally.

One of my favorite chamber programs is the annual "Meet the Mayors" breakfast. You get to hear what's happening in our local cities and villages from the leaders themselves.

This year's program, which will be on May 20 at the Hilton Garden Inn at 235 Hoosick St. in Troy, features Rensselaer Mayor Daniel Dwyer, Watervliet Mayor Mike Manning, Cohoes Mayor George Primeau, Troy Mayor Lou Rosamilia and Green Island Mayor Ellen McNulty-Ryan.

The schedule is 7:30 a.m. registration and breakfast with the program running from 8 to 9 a.m.

It's normally a lively session, with updates on economic development and a look at what's ahead for each municipality, and there'seven  time for your questions and answers. If you're interested in attending, call (518) 274-7020 or go to
