Hamilton County Treasurer Beth Hunt was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the New York State Association of Counties
(NYSAC) at the Association's Annual Meeting in Monroe County this week.
"I am pleased to welcome Beth to the NYSAC Board of Directors. Her knowledge and expertise in county government finance will help us with innovation and modernizing county government operations across the state," said NYSAC President Charles H. Nesbitt, Jr., the Orleans Chief Administrative Officer.
NYSAC represents New York's 57 counties and the City of New York in Albany and Washington on matters germane to county governments and informs county officials and the public about issues that impact county governments across the state.
Hunt has served Hamilton County in various positions beginning in 1996, including as the county Personnel Officer, Safety Officer, and Election Commissioner, before being elected county treasurer in 2004.
After serving as Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice President of the NYS County Treasurers and Financing Officers Association, Beth served as President of the Association in 2017. She is also a board member of the Public Employers Risk Management Association, and a member of the Government Financial Officers Association.
"I am honored to play a more active leadership role in the association," said Hunt. "NYSAC continues to be on the forefront of the issues impacting local governments and working to develop solutions that provide vital local services at the lowest cost to our taxpayers."
"We are honored to have Beth Hunt on the board of directors. Her guidance and unique perspective will be a valuable asset 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
