Melville, NY - December 22, 2016 - The Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association (NSWCA) congratulates and welcomes to its organization the newly elected and re-elected water commissioners representing 21 Long Island water districts following the recent annual water district elections. The three-year terms of office for elected commissioners run from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2019.
NSWCA President and Massapequa Water District Commissioner Raymond J. Averna commented, “It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the elected commissioners and welcome both new and returning colleagues to the NSWCA. Commissioner-run water districts give residents of Nassau and Suffolk a voice about our vital water supply on the most local of all levels in each community.
Long Island residents have expressed their preferences and opinions through the voting process and have selected the candidates of their choice. On this hyper-local community level, every vote truly counts. It is refreshing to see grass roots democracy in action.”
Here are the newly elected and re-elected water commissioners joining or returning to NSWCA following the recent district elections:
Organized and chartered in 1981, Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association (NSWCA) is comprised of water commissioners from 21 Nassau and Suffolk County Water Districts.
