This Week’s TMR: The State of Onondaga County

Syracuse, N.Y. – Onondaga County Executive J. Ryan McMahon will discuss the state of the county during a Zoom public forum from 8 to 9 a.m. Thursday hosted by Syracuse University’s Thursday Morning Roundtable.

McMahon replaced Joanie Mahoney as county executive in November 2018 and was elected to the position in November 2019. A graduate of Bishop Ludden High School and Le Moyne College in Syracuse, McMahon previously served as a Syracuse City Councilor, Onondaga County Legislator, and Chairman of the County Legislature.

As County Executive, McMahon initially focused on three main initiatives: poverty, infrastructure and economic development. McMahon’s primary focus since the spring has been the county’s COVID-19 response, and although he tested negative, he recently quarantined at home after being exposed to a family member who had the virus.

Now in its 55th year, Thursday Morning Roundtable features speakers who discuss current topics in Central New York. Following the forum, residents can use the chat function to ask questions and Emily Winiecki, community engagement coordinator for Syracuse University’s Office of Community Engagement, will moderate the Q&A session.
