Superintendent Perry Dewey represented DCMO BOCES at the Otsego County Chamber’s
State of the State program held on January 3, 2017,
at SUNY Oneonta. The Legislator's panel included Senator James
Seward, Assemblymen Cliff Crouch, Pete Lopez, and William Magee, City of
Oneonta Mayor Gary Herzog, and Cooperstown Mayor Jeff Katz. The panelists presented a wide range of
issues affecting our rural communities,
and yet, with the exception of two comments about minimum wage challenges, the comments from the audience gravitated towards the
topic of education.
