Preview of 2016 State of the County Address

Broome County Executive Debbie Preston is set to deliver the State of the County address on Tuesday night.

Preston told Fox 40 she'll cover an number of topics. These topics will include the need for more treatment beds for the heroin crisis, economic development, and the privatization of the Willow Point Nursing Home.

She adds that the joint efforts of a number of leaders have led to success, such as the Southern Tier's $500 million win in the Regional Economic Development Council Competition.

"It can never be about politics. It can never be about the one 'I am,' or one person doing it," said Preston, "Because you'll never accomplish any of the goals that you need to accomplish to make Broome County better unless we work at it as a team and as a community."

The State of the County Address will take place Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the Broome County Legislative Chambers. All are welcome to attend.
