DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Even though start times have been adjusted over the years to accommodate their work schedules, only a handful of Dutchess County legislators have perfect attendance for full board and committee meetings, according to a report by the Poughkeepsie Journal.

And only one, Angela Flesland, made it to every single official meeting over the last two years, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.

Residents say that the legislators, who are paid a stipend, are elected to serve the public and have a duty to be present at all meetings, the Poughkeepsie Journal story said.
