The Board of Directors for the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) has elected Ontario County Chairman Jack Marren to serve as 2nd Vice President. NYSAC is a statewide bipartisan municipal association comprised of all of the counties from across the State.
“Chairman Marren is a thoughtful and effective county leader committed to innovating and modernizing county government operations in Ontario and across the state, and we are pleased that he will be serving on our Executive Committee,” said NYSAC President MaryEllen Odell, the Putnam County Executive.
Organized in 1925, NYSAC is the only statewide municipal association representing the interests of thousands of county leaders, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners and other county officials. NYSAC’s mission is to inform, educate, advocate for, and serve member counties and the thousands of elected and appointed county officials who serve the public.
“I am honored that my peers elected me to serve in this leadership capacity and I look forward to helping county leaders from across the state create smarter and more cost-effective local governments,” said Chairman Marren, who has been the Supervisor of the Town of Victor for the past nine years and has served as the chairman of the Ontario County Board of Supervisors since 2013.
NYSAC represents counties before federal and state officials and works to inform county officials through conferences, workshops, research reports, publications, and a range of electronic communication vehicles. They also advocate against costly unfunded state mandates that drive up local taxes.
“We are honored to have Chairman Jack Marren 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.
