Counties Elect Clinton County Administrator Zurlo as First Vice President
County leaders across the state elected Clinton County Administrator Michael Zurlo to serve as the 1st Vice President of NYSAC.
County leaders across the state this week elected Clinton County Administrator Michael Zurlo to serve as the 1st Vice President of the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC).
“Our Association provides an important venue for us to share best practices and voice the concerns of our counties and communities, and I am looking forward working with the executive committee to support the county leaders who serve New Yorkers across this great state,” said Zurlo.
Mr. Zurlo was appointed the Clinton County Administrator in 2004, after serving as the deputy county administrator since 2001. Prior to his Clinton County service, Mr. Zurlo spent nine years working in the New York State Senate. During that time, he held the position of Legislative Director for New York State Senator Ronald Stafford and served as secretary to the powerful Senate Finance Committee.
"Mr. Zurlo is a knowledgeable and experienced county official. His experience in state and county government makes him steady and valuable leader for all of our colleagues in county government,” said Martha Sauerbrey, President of NYSAC.
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide bipartisan municipal association representing the interests of thousands of county leaders, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners, and other county officials from all 57 counties and the City of New York.
"We are honored to have Clinton County Administrator Zurlo in this leadership role,” said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.?“His guidance and perspective as second vice president will be a valuable asset to the Association as we continue to address the critical issues facing counties across the state."
NYSAC represents counties before federal and state officials and works to inform county officials through conferences, workshops, reports, and extensive communication.
First Vice President Zurlo's one-year term begins immediately and extends until the next Fall meeting of the Association.
