Monticello, NY – Sullivan County District 6 Legislator Luis Alvarez has been named to a number of committees of the National Association of Counties (NACo).
In a July 20 letter from NACo President Gary W. Moore, Alvarez was notified of his appointment to the national advocacy organization’s Health Steering Subcommittee (as Vice Chair of Medicaid and Indigent Care), Healthy Counties Initiative Advisory Board, Large Urban County Caucus Steering Committee, Programs and Services Standing Committee, Rural Action Caucus Steering Committee, Veterans and Military Services Committee, and Immigration Reform Task Force.
“You were chosen because my goal is to build a talented and committed leadership team for NACo,” wrote Moore to Alvarez. “Now is a critical time for our nation’s counties, and your leadership in this committee is a serious commitment and responsibility.”
Alvarez previously served as vice chair of NACo’s Law Enforcement Subcommittee and began participating with the organization in 2017, when he was Chair of the Sullivan County Legislature.
“I strongly believe in NACo’s mission and am proud to represent Sullivan County on its committees, which have national influence,” Alvarez related. “While I remain committed to my constituents as their legislator, it’s important to recognize that we’re part of a larger system of government that constantly needs review and improvement.”
NACo strives to unite America’s 3,069 county governments. Founded in 1935, the nonprofit brings county officials together to advocate with a collective voice on national policy, exchange ideas and build new leadership skills, pursue transformational county solutions, enrich the public’s understanding of county government and exercise exemplary leadership in public service.
