This just in from Orange and Rockland:
New York’s Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy was the guest speaker at last night’s Rockland Business Association Annual Celebrity dinner at the Hilton Pearl River.
Duffy, the chairman of New York State’s new regional development councils, addressed the current economic situation and state government efforts to enhance economic development programs.
Rockland businessmen were eager to discuss their views.
