In her first State of the County address after being elected to a full term, Broome County Executive Debra Preston told the legislator her vision for the county wasn’t just for the four years of her administration, but for the next 40 years.The executive is apparently hoping passing out posies will help in the passage of important legislation to fulfill her vision. The Republican gave a white rose to each legislator to symbolize a mood of cooperation.

Several projects were outlined as priorities in the approximately half hour speech, including a goal to move forward with plans that have been discussed for years regarding the development of the Greater Binghamton Airport corridor.  That would include the installation of a sewer system.  Preston also said it was important to develop energy of all forms including renewable, conventional and alternative. She did not specifical mention hydraulic fracture drilling for natural gas, which Preston firmly supports.

On the economic development/ job front, the Republican was upbeat on the prospects for growth spurred by the upcoming development of a  high-tech business incubator in cooperation with Binghamton University that will break ground in downtown Binghamton this spring.
