Longest-Serving Rensselaer County Executive Looks Back

Jan 4, 2018

Republican Rensselaer County Executive Kathy Jimino, who has been in office since 2001, announced in May that she would not seek another term. She endorsed her deputy to succeed her, but Chris Meyer lost the GOP primary to Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, a controversial candidate who won the general election and takes office next week. 

Jimino spoke with WAMC’s Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas about her time in office and what she’ll do next.
