Counties Elect Westchester County Legislator Ben Boykin As Second Vice President
County leaders from across the state this week elected Westchester County Legislator Benjamin Boykin II to serve as 2nd Vice President for the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC).
“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 New York's counties,” said Boykin. “Local governments are at a turning point and I'm excited to help counties across New York chart a course for 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 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.
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 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.
