From the County Legislative Chair
Welcome to Schenectady County
- a great place to work, live
and raise a family.
Schenectady County has a proud history of blazing new trails of discovery. We were the home of Thomas Edison and Charles Steinmetz who changed the world with their innovation. We continue to be the home of leaders of industry and future trailblazers creating new opportunities in research, technology and innovation. It has been said that “leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” Today our community is reaping the benefit of the strong leadership exhibited by our County Legislature as we’ve translated a strong vision for the entire county into bold action. Schenectady County has seen remarkable growth as we’ve created a successful, unified economic development strategy.
