  • Reminders from the Ulster County District Attorney
    It is that time of year when students in our county will be taking part in proms and graduations. Although it is justifiably a time of joy and celebratration, it is equally one for caution and restraint. I am writing to enlist your assistance in helping to prevent the potentially tragic consequences of drinking and driving.
