Daniel McCoy, Albany County’s executive, did not mention the Hilltowns in Monday’s State of the County address but — shown here on a listening tour last year in Berne — he says he visits the Hilltowns often, is well aware of their needs, and has been trying to meet them. He said the Hilltowns weren’t mentioned in his 40-minute speech simply because there wasn’t enough time. “When you do the State of the County,” he said, “after 15 minutes, you start to lose people.”
