Huntington Station, NY - February 10, 2014 - Suffolk Legislator Lou D’Amaro (D-Huntington Station), who was recently sworn into his fifth term in office, has been tapped by newly-elected Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory to return as chairman of the Legislature’s vital Budget and Finance committee, a position he previously held in 2012.
“I am humbled that Presiding Officer Gregory has appointed me chairman of the critically-important Budget & Finance committee,” said Legislator D’Amaro, who chaired his first committee meeting this past week. “Protecting taxpayers and controlling the size of government have always been my top priority, and I am committed to using my new leadership position on the Budget and Finance Committee to advance these goals.”
In addition to chairing the Budget and Finance Committee, D’Amaro was also appointed to serve on the Education & Information Technology and Human Services committees.
“I am excited to also serve on two other very important committees this year,” D’Amaro said. “The Education Committee oversees Suffolk County Community College, which is one of the crown jewels of County government. This Human Services Committee is tasked with ensuring that the County continues providing a social safety net, which is essential during these difficult economic times. I look forward to bringing my governing perspective to these two important committees.”
