Serino to join county Office of Aging in January

Retiring State Sen. Sue Serino (R-41) will join the Dutchess County Office for Aging (OFA) in January, focused on outreach and engagement with seniors.

Serino, who lost her seat in November to Michelle Hinchey, a Democrat, will start in her new role on Jan. 3, in a part-time position as an hourly communications specialist.

Her goal in reaching out to seniors is to ensure they are aware of and connected with the various local/community, county, state and federal programs and resources available to them — for socialization, health and financial awareness, according to the county executive’s office.

Todd Tancredi, director of OFA, said, “For years, Sue Serino has been a tireless advocate for Dutchess County seniors, and with her vast knowledge of resources available at many levels of government for local older adults, Sue will be a valuable addition to our Office for the Aging.

“Having partnered with Sue to address issues for senior constituents and worked with her to host the annual Golden Gathering event for several years, our OFA has seen firsthand her passion for connecting with Dutchess County’s senior population, and local residents will continue to benefit from Sue’s experience and desire to help them age successfully.”

In a statement, Serino said: “Throughout my time in the Senate, my work with the Aging Committee has allowed me to ensure our seniors were made a priority in the eyes of the state. I’m thrilled to continue to build on the progress we have made in this new role with Dutchess County Office for the Aging, where my goal will be to help identify evolving needs of our aging population and ensure our senior neighbors have access to the resources they need to thrive.”
