County Officials Elect Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro as NYSAC President-Elect
County leaders from across the state elected Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro to serve as the Association's President-Elect.
County leaders from across the state this week elected Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro to serve as the Association's President-Elect. His term as president-elect will run until next September 2022.
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide municipal association representing the interests of all the state's county leaders, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners and other of county officials who deliver county services.
“I'm honored and humbled to be chosen by my peers in county government to serve as President-Elect of this great organization,” said President-Elect Molinaro. “As we work to end the pandemic for good and get our lives and economy back to normal, it's critical that the local governments who are on the front lines in their communities have an effective voice in Albany and beyond, and I look forward to supporting that effort.
Molinaro was elected as Dutchess County's 7th County Executive in November 2011. At 36, he took office as the youngest County Executive in county history. He was re-elected for a third term in 2019. He is also currently serving as president of the New York State County Executives Association, which is an affiliate of NYSAC that represents the 18 counties with county executives and the City of New York.
“County Executive Molinaro is an exemplary public servant and a great asset to our association. It will be an honor to work with him over the coming year to guide NYSAC and the counties of New York State as we emerge from this pandemic and rebuild our communities,” said NYSAC President Martha (Marte) Sauerbrey.
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.
“I've had the pleasure of working with County Executive Molinaro for many years and I'm confident that he'll bring the same energy, expertise and vision to NYSAC that he brings to Dutchess County. His leadership is invaluable as we continue to navigate the extraordinary challenges and opportunities local governments face in our current environment," said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.
NYSAC represents counties before federal and state officials and works to inform county officials through conferences, workshops, research reports, and a range of publications.
