County Executive addresses North Rockland business crowd

The North Rockland Business Alliance (NRBA) hosted a networking mixer Wednesday evening at the new Dimola’s on the Hudson in Stony Point. County Executive Ed Day was the guest speaker, and addressed the audience of local business owners and concerned citizens on some of his work during the first few months of the new administration.

Diego Aviles (founder of the North Rockland Community Facebook Group) and Tom Ossa (president of the NRBA) served as co-masters of ceremony during the two hour gathering. Dimola’s staff provided free gourmet appetizers throughout the evening.

Other local government officials and dignitaries included Stony Point Town Supervisor Geoff Finn, Haverstraw Town Supervisor Howard Phillips, Rockland County Legislator Jay Hood, Stony Point Town Councilman Tom Basile, and former Town Councilwoman Luanne Konopko.

During his address to the audience, Mr. Day identified how he had aligned his campaign promises with his current efforts claiming his approach to reduce Rockland’s (property taxes), eradicate corruption and stagnation, and enforce residential and business zoning codes had been paying off so far. Day also introduced some of his new administration to the audience, such as his Chief of Staff Gil Rosa.

Dimola’s on the Hudson had been Gilligan’s on the Hudson restaurant, until recently changing to an all-catering and event business. The venue is able to handle up to 90 guests per event, and the dance floor, bar area and multiple HDTVs are available for weddings, corporate functions, seminars and more.

The event was sponsored by Joyce Insurance Agency (http://www.joyceins.com/), and Rockland Web Design (http://rocklandwebdesign.com/).

NRBA’s next event will be held at The Copper Still Restaurant in Pomona. Tentative date is scheduled for Tuesday May 6, but please check the website at www.northrocklandchamber.org.
