Palisades Institute Forum Features Five Town Supervisors 

All five of Rockland’s Town Supervisors, George Hoehmann of Clarkstown, Howard Phillips of Haverstraw, Teresa Kenny of Orangetown, Michael Specht of Ramapo, and James Monaghan of Stony Point took part in a Palisades Institute forum.

Rockland County’s five Town Supervisors discussed a wide range of topics of interest to business leaders during a Palisades Institute forum.  The top town leaders discussed housing, transportation, taxes, the economy, recycling, and much more at the forum on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, in Rosary Hall. 

Clarkstown Town Supervisor George Hoehmann used a discussion on sustainability to tout the fact that Clarkstown is the only municipality in the Lower Hudson Valley to have a large-scale solar field. In addition, he said more solar projects are in the works.  “When we finish up these couple of additional projects in the next year to a year and a half, we will be the first town in New York State to take ourselves off of the grid,” said Hoehmann. 

Other Town Supervisors who participated in the forum were Haverstraw Town Supervisor Howard Phillips, Orangetown Town Supervisor Teresa Kenny, Ramapo Town Supervisor Michael Specht, and Stony Point Town Supervisor James Monaghan.   

The aim of the Palisades Institute of Dominican University, NY is to encourage leaders in business, government, and not-for-profit agencies to integrate the concepts of leadership, quality, and ethics to achieve long-term success.
