Monticello, NY – District 2 Legislator Nadia Rajsz has been named to two influential committees of the National Association of Counties (NACo): the Human Services & Education Committee, and the Immigration Reform Task Force.
“To be appointed as a representative on these two groups is immensely gratifying, and I look forward to helping create practical solutions to real-world issues,” Rajsz remarked. “I work as an educator and health professional, and my parents immigrated to America from Ukraine after World War II, so both committees deal with issues incredibly important to me.”
As a member of these committees, Rajsz will participate in monthly conference calls to discuss positions and strategies on a range of issues, from federal immigration policy to educational initiatives.
NACo and its committees aim to strengthen America’s counties, serving nearly 40,000 county elected officials and 3.6 million county employees. Founded in 1935, NACo unites county officials to:
- Advocate county priorities in federal policymaking
- Promote exemplary county policies and practices
- Nurture leadership skills and expand knowledge networks
- Optimize county and taxpayer resources and cost savings, and
- Enrich the public’s understanding of county government.
