Supervisor George Green Given Spirit of Innovation Award

Supervisor George Green Given Spirit of Innovation Award

Town Supervisor George Green was awarded the Spirit of Innovation Award for 2018 this week by the Orange County Partnership for Economic Development. He was acknowledged for his foresight in developing such things as the largest All Inclusive Playground in the region, for his understanding of coming drinking water issues and development of wells and a filtration system that can not only supply New Windsor, but also other neighboring communities in the event of a crisis. Green had begun studying the needs of planning alternate water strategies back in the 1970’s, and the plan came to fruition with high producing wells and a filtration system this year. Along with promotion of the Stewart Airport Corridor, those are just a few of the forward-thinking projects which his longtime friend and the Town’s engineer for many years Dick McGooey of McGooey, Hauser and Edsall acknowledged about him at the award-giving, “Green has displayed exceptional initiatives, accomplishing projects that have strengthened our county’s future.”

Green said he was proud of all the people who helped accomplished these projects, adding ‘You haven’t seen anything yet. With Stewart Airport development there’s going to be more economic development and jobs than you ever dreamed of.”
