Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro gave his farewell address on Friday ahead of his departure for Washington, D.C. 
That address titled "We Made a Difference,” reflects on his 11-year tenure as Dutchess County Executive.
Molinaro will now be heading to Congress to represent the 19th Congressional District.
"These years of holding elected office have shaped and defined my love of public service," says Molinaro.  
During his address Molinaro also touched on some accomplishments including expanding care for older residents, sustained tax relief and the addition of a state-of-the-art youth center in Poughkeepsie.
"Our collaborative approach has made an immeasurable impact on the lives of countless county residents,” says Molinaro. “It has literally saved lives, helped to rebuild communities and as I leave this office, I trust this sense of cooperation and understanding will long prevail."
Molinaro is set to assume his new role in Congress on Jan. 3, 2023.
