By Chris Vernam I need to apologize for the lateness of this post. So, our first Industry Day for Leadership Allegany 2018-2019 was to Belmont NY for a broad overview of the Judicial System and the different aspects of it, as well as a tour of the Allegany County Jail. We were introduced to a number of county employee’s that truly showed a passion for what they do. I gained a little more understanding of the judicial process from the presentations that were given. One of the biggest things that I learned from the day is that everyone that presented to us enjoyed their work, even though the long hours, and the emotionally draining days. They all had a common goal of helping the people they are serving. From trying to help work the issues out before it goes to court, to helping someone get into a rehabilitation program. To the jail, and working with the individual there so they do not come back. I was impressed with the jail and how that is a viable revenue source for the county. The garden and the pheasants that the inmates have the opportunity to work with, and help the community and the jail it’s self was very interesting. I enjoyed this day and look forward to what our future Industry days will bring. Chris
