Counties Elect Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy as Second Vice President
County leaders from across the state elected Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy to serve as 2nd Vice President for NYSAC.
County leaders from across the state this week elected Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy to serve as 2nd Vice President for the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC). The election was held at NYSAC's Fall Seminar conference in Onondaga County.
“I'm honored to be chosen for this leadership position and look forward to continuing to represent county interests in this new role with the Association of Counties,” said McCoy. “We're at a pivotal moment for county government and I'm excited to work with my colleagues as we continue to find new ways to best serve New Yorkers.”
County Executive McCoy is currently serving his third term as the fourth Albany County Executive. Before being elected as County Executive in 2011, McCoy served twelve years as a county legislator, including a two-year term as chairman of the legislature.
McCoy is also currently serving as president of County Executives of America, a national association that represents county executives from across the United States. He is also past president of the New York State County Executives' Association. In this role, he coordinated opioid litigation, led distribution of personal protective equipment among county leaders across the state, helped establish walk up testing facilities, and commissioned the book Our Darkest Hours: County Leadership and the COVID Pandemic.
“County Executive McCoy is a dedicated public servant who has displayed exceptional leadership, not only throughout his career as Albany County Executive but also in his service in the United States Army and National Guard. Our association and the people of New York State will benefit from his vision and commitment to innovation and improvement in county government,” said NYSAC President Martha (Marte) Sauerbrey.
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide 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.
NYSAC is a bipartisan organization and represents counties before federal and state officials and works to inform county officials through conferences, workshops, reports, and extensive communication.
"We are honored to have County Executive McCoy in this leadership role. 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," said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.?
