Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Bainbridge) and Sen. Fred Akshar (R,C,IP) held a press conference today in the town of Bainbridge dedicating a bridge to long-time Bainbridge resident and former Town Supervisor Hugh A. Kearney. This portion of State Route 206 East crossing the Susquehanna River in the town Bainbridge shall now be known as the "Hugh A. Kearney Memorial Bridge.”

Hugh Kearney was a dedicated servant of the community. He served as town councilman, town supervisor, a member of the Chenango County Board of Supervisors, Bainbridge Development Corporation, the Chenango County IDA, Vision 21 in Sidney, NY, and on the local school board, of which he was President for two years.

“Hugh was a special and caring person,” said Crouch. “His dedication and service to the community was undeniable. He spent his entire life serving the community he loved, doing whatever he could to make a difference and to make his community a better and safer environment for its residents. I am very happy to be able to dedicate this bridge in his memory; I hope it serves as a reminder of all the wonderful things he did for the community as well as an inspiration for generations to come. May we forever remember Hugh, his hard work, dedication and accomplishments.”

Sen. Fred Akshar said, "Hugh Kearney devoted his life to serving his community, and left an indelible mark on the lives of families in Bainbridge and surrounding communities in Chenango County. Today I'm proud to partner with Assemblyman Crouch and do my small part as State Senator to help honor Hugh's memory and legacy."
