Meet MaryEllen Odell

MaryEllen Odell is currently serving her second term as Putnam County Executive. Through her five years on the Putnam County Legislature and the past six years as County Executive, she has challenged the status quo while focusing on balancing her fiscal and social responsibilities to the people of Putnam County.

Being solution-oriented, MaryEllen makes things possible. Putnam County has the lowest tax bill of any of the 62 counties in New York State, while maintaining its Aa2 Moody’s Bond Rating. She has successfully been able to do this while keeping all six of her administration’s budgets under the NYS 2% tax cap, reducing the county’s long-term debt by 15% and eliminating the short-term debt that her administration inherited.
