State's County Officials Elect Ontario County Chair Marren as their President-Elect

NYSAC elections were held this week in Sullivan County.

 
The Board of Directors for the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) and association members have elected Ontario County Chair Jack Marren to serve as NYSAC's President-Elect. Marren is expected to become President of the association in September 2020.
 
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide municipal association representing the interests of all of the state's county leaders, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners and other of county officials who deliver county services.
 
NYSAC is a bipartisan organization, with a mission to inform, educate, advocate for, and serve member counties and the thousands of elected and appointed county officials who serve the public.
 
“Chairman Marren is a thoughtful and effective county leader committed to innovating and modernizing county government operations in Ontario and across the state, and he has been a valuable member of our Executive Board,” said NYSAC President Scott Samuelson, Sullivan County Legislator.
 
“I am honored that my peers elected me to serve in this leadership capacity and I look forward to supporting county leaders from across the state in creating cost-effective local governments,” said Marren, who has been the Supervisor of the Town of Victor for the past ten years and has served as Chair of the Ontario County Board of Supervisors since 2013.
 
NYSAC represents counties before federal and state officials and works to inform county officials through conferences, workshops, research reports, and a range of publications. The association also advocates against costly unfunded state mandates that tend to drive up local taxes.
 
"We are honored to have Chairman Jack Marren in this leadership role. His guidance and perspective are valuable assets to the Association as we continue to address the critical issues facing counties and property taxpayers across the state," said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.
