Counties Elect Westchester County Legislator Ben Boykin as President-Elect
County leaders from across the state last week elected Westchester County Legislator Benjamin Boykin to serve as President-Elect for the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC). The election was held as part of NYSAC’s annual meeting and Fall Seminar held in Oneida County.
“It’s an honor to be chosen for this leadership position and I look forward to working with my colleagues to advocate on behalf of Westchester and all of New York’s counties,” said Boykin. “Our counties and local governments face a number of critical challenges and opportunities and I’m excited to NYSAC and my colleagues from across the state navigate our communities to a brighter future.”
Hon. Ben Boykin was re-elected in November 2021 to his fifth term on the Westchester County Board of Legislators for District 5 (representing most of White Plains, all of Scarsdale and West Harrison).
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide municipal association representing the interests of all of New York State’s county leaders, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners, and other county officials from all 57 counties and the City of New York. Our mission is to foster excellence in county governance and unite the voice of county leaders.
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 Legislator Boykin in this leadership role. His guidance and perspective as president-elect will be a tremendous asset to the Association as we continue to address the critical issues facing counties across the state," said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.
