Ulster comptroller running for her own four-year term
Patricia Doxsey is reporting for the Daily Freeman Ulster County Comptroller March Gallagher has launched her bid to serve a full four-year term as the county's fiscal watchdog. "I love my job and the opportunities I have every day to ensure fiscal responsibility and transparency for the people of Ulster County, making Ulster the best place to live, work and care for a family,” Gallagher said in a press release. She was elected in November 2019 to complete the term of Elliott Auerbach, who resigned as county comptroller to take a job in the office of state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. Auerbach's four-year term would have ended on December 31, 2021. To date, no one else has declared their intention to run. A resident of Rosendale, Gallagher is an attorney and a former president and chief executive officer of Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, a position she left to run for comptroller. She previously served as chief strategy officer for Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress, deputy planning director and director of business services for Ulster County, and chairwoman of the Ulster County Industrial Development Agency.
