Legislator Christopher J. Carey Elected Minority Leader


New City, NY (January 13, 2014) - Rockland County Legislator Christopher J. Carey (R-Bardonia) was unanimously elected to the position of Minority Leader of the Rockland County Legislature during the January reorganization meeting. This is the second consecutive year that Legislator Carey has been selected for that leadership post.


“It is an honor to have been chosen by my Republican colleagues to be the minority leader of the legislature,” Legislator Carey said. “Though we are the minority in the legislature, we work well with our Democratic colleagues and I look forward to continuing that relationship.”


Minority Leader Carey said that his top priority would continue to be solving the fiscal crisis of the county. “As I always have, I will work to be a voice for fiscal responsibility to permanently address Rockland’s financial woes and alleviate the burdens on Rockland’s taxpayers,” he said.


Legislator Christopher J. Carey represents District 9, which includes a large part of the Town of Clarkstown. He was first elected in 2011.

Of all of the 17 legislators, Chris Carey is the most responsible. We could use more like him.

I agree Mike but I think Mr Carey could take. a Page out of the playbook of Ed Day and communicate to his and other constituents. odds are if you asked 10 people on the street 9 would not know the name of their Legislator. With all this new technology, this could be improved. He should be compiling an email list and communicating more.
