“County Executive McCoy is a hard working county leader committed to innovating and modernizing county government operations in Albany and across the state,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, president of the County Executives’ Association.
The County Executives’ Association includes the chief elected leaders from the 18 county governments with charter forms of government that include a county executive, plus the mayor of the City of New York. (See below for a full list of counties). Under the Association executive leadership succession process, County Executive McCoy will serve as president for one year beginning December 2015.
These county executives from across the state meet on a quarterly basis to discuss critical issues facing counties in New York. Chief among these issues is the 2014 Legislative Session and the 2014-15 state budget, which annually impacts county operations and funding. They also discuss concerns surrounding home rule authority, successful shared services programs, state tax reform proposals, the Affordable Care Act and partnering with the incoming Mayor of the City of New York.
County Executive McCoy was first elected to the position of Albany County Executive in November 2011. He is a strong advocate for counties’ role in strengthening public safety, ensuring fiscal responsibility, and shoring up core infrastructure assets.
"We are honored to have County Executive McCoy 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 and property taxpayers across the state," said NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario.
The counties participating in the County Executives Association include: Albany, Broome, Chautauqua, Chemung, Dutchess, Erie, Monroe, Montgomery, Nassau, Oneida, Onondaga, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Suffolk, Ulster, Westchester, and the City of New York.
The New York State County Executives Association is an affiliate of the New York State Association of Counties, a bipartisan municipal association serving the counties of New York State including the City of New York. Organized in 1925, NYSAC’s mission is to represent, educate and advocate for member counties and the thousands of elected and appointed county officials who serve the public.
