Public Health Director Frank Kruppa Reappointed The Legislature, by unanimous vote (Legislator Peter Stein was excused), confirmed County Administrator Joe Mareane's reappointment of Public Health Director Frank Kruppa for a second six-year term.

Kruppa's current term expires as of April 11th. New York State requires the term reappointment, since the Public Health Director position holds the responsibility for direct administration of State law.

County Administrator Joe Mareane said, "I think it's been clear that Frank has done a stand-out job," with achievements including developing a strategic plan for the department, automating major systems, putting the County at the forefront of preparedness, and developing employee reward and recognition programs that serve as a model for the rest of county government.

The Legislature held a brief executive session prior to the vote.
