Hundreds of County Officials Convened in Albany
Delegates from all 57 counties and the City of New York convened at the Legislative Conference of the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC). More than 900 attendees attended meetings, educational forums, keynote addresses and state budget presentations over the course of the three-day conference.
 
The county delegation received an insightful assessment of the state's economic conditions, a presentation on the sobering numbers of New Yorkers being lost to opioid addiction, and a stirring speech about the Governor's proposal to have county leaders convene local governments to develop a local referendum to share services.
