Will appoint new officers in January
The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce announced its 2017 board of directors at its annual holiday party held at Dutchess Manor on Dec. 15.
The board is Martin Barth of Meyers Associates, LP; Jack Goldstein of JLG Antiques; Yuriy Herhel of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio; Katie Liberman of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival; Barney Molloy, chair of Putnam County Tourism, and Raul Olave of Auspicious Business Solutions.
A new president and other officers will be appointed in January after President Alison Anthoine and Vice President Jillian Bono-Kelly step down on Dec. 31. Jack Goldstein is the lone new addition to the board.
The Cold Spring Area Chamber bylaws require nine board members. Who are the other three?
I truly don’t understand why the Chamber of Commerce would have Barney Molloy on its board given his lack of support for Cold Spring tourism and our businesses since he’s been involved with the Putnam County Visitors’ Bureau. I thought the chamber was supposed to be about promoting local businesses and helping the merchants of Main Street. Maybe I have it confused with another organization.
