Kevin-ProfileMeet Kevin

As Putnam County Executive, Kevin Byrne has done more to prioritize government spending, streamline services, implement new cost savings initiatives, and lower taxes.

In his first year as County Executive, Kevin delivered real tax relief that reduced the overall tax burden in the budget for the first time in 25 years, lowered the tax rate to its lowest level in 15 years, and reduced sales tax to make it fairer and less regressive- all with no new borrowing. This is in addition to enacting a new property tax exemption for volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers that further compliments his record of lowering taxes as a state Assemblyman where he not only stood firm voting against every state tax increase, but actually cut income taxes for middle class families and brought back property tax relief.

Kevin resides in Mahopac with his wife, Briana, who has a busy career as a physician assistant (PA), with their young son, Braeden.
