Progress Starts Here
Important COVID-19 Updates:
The novel coronavirus is present in Otsego County. Our county government continues to provide essential services to our residents, although they may currently take a different form. Please continue to follow all of the advice from the health experts at the county, state, and federal level. We will only beat this virus if we all work together to limit its spread. Let's practice social distancing and proper hygiene and look out for our neighbors, especially those most vulnerable.
Follow the County DOH or download their app for the most recent updates!
Here is a list of Oneonta Area resources to help those in need.
A Message from Rep. Andrew Stammel
"In 2013 I ran for office because our Town Board was not representing the people. I promise to always place our residents first and to ignore the partisan, personal, and special interests. We must work together to make our government transparent, effective, ethical, and accountable. Let's see a return to public service and collaboration between parties to deliver real common sense results for the people.
To all of our friends, family, and neighbors (Democrats, Republicans, independents, and others) who volunteered or voted in previous elections. Thanks to your hard work and support, our campaigns were successful, winning over 99% of the vote in 2019.
It has been a privilege and honor representing our Town and County and I'm looking forward to serving residents again in my third term on the County Board. We may not be able to fix all the problems right away in Washington and Albany but we can make a real positive change locally. Let's keep the momentum and deliver positive change again in the next term!
Progress starts here."

In his role representing the Town of Oneonta at the County level, Andrew wants to remain transparent and keep you all updated about what is happening in Cooperstown. This informational website will add to our continuing conversations at Town and County Board meetings. Your feedback is also important so, please, reach out to me.

This year, the County Board Chair has appointed me to three committees: Health and Education (as Chair); Public Safety & Legal Affairs; and Performance Review & Goal Setting. These committees concentrate on some of the issues most important to me and to you. Thank you for your interest in this website and for your continued support.
