Legislature Remembers DSS Commissioner John Beaudoin


John Beaudoin capably and faithfully served Rensselaer County for several decades, including over 30 years service as Commissioner of the Department of Social Services. His recent passing ended a career and lifetime of service and compassion. The Rensselaer County Legislature welcomed members of John's family to recognize his service at the April 11 meeting. Vice Chair for Finance Phil Danaher, at podium, read a resolution adopted in John's memory.
