A new County Executive Facebook page has also been set up to foster more communications with the public.

“In today’s world, social media has become the preferred method of communication for many of the people we serve, so I am happy to announce that we are strengthening that link between us and the public,” Picente said. “I am especially excited to live stream this year’s State of the County Address, as it will allow us to share our bold vision for the future of this region with Oneida County and beyond.”
