ALMOND, NY — The Allegany County Democratic Committee has officially adopted a section of State Rt. 21 in Almond, NY as part of the NYS Department of Transportation’s “Adopt-a-Highway” program.  The first clean-up took place on Sat., August 21st

This stretch of highway is heavily used by locals and visitors alike, particularly as drivers exit the I-86 Expressway on their way to the college and university in Alfred or to recreational opportunities elsewhere in the area. State Rt. 21 in Almond was specifically selected for adoption by the Committee because of its importance as a gateway to our county, in keeping with the Committee’s desire to protect and enhance the quality of life in the county.  

Ly Kesse, Democratic candidate for Allegany County Legislature in Dist. 5, which includes the Village of Almond, led the group of volunteers on the approximately two-mile stretch. Ms. Kesse remarked, “Litter-free highways and byways are so much more pleasant….who wants to look at garbage along the roadside? So much more pleasant to gaze at Nature.”  Numerous bags of trash were collected, giving the roadway a much-improved appearance. 

This is just one of the many ways local Democrats devote their time to serving our community.  To learn more, visit or find us on Facebook.  Reach out via email or phone (585) 610-4321.

The Allegany County Democratic Committee is the official governing body for the County Party, working toward broader representation by Democrats at the local, state, and national levels.
