According to Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, "When we revived this organization last year we committed to addressing three priority areas; water quality protection, reducing health care costs, and achieving cost savings through shared services. These topics remain the key focus of our organization, and I am pleased to help lead the way in bringing policy makers and experts to the table to develop regional strategies to help address these issues."
"Together the Suffolk County Supervisors represent nearly 1.5 million people and I was proud to work with my fellow Supervisors on issues of importance to all of our residents. I know that Supervisor Throne-Holst and Supervisor Croci will be strong advocates for the ten towns in Suffolk County," said Supervisor Mark Lesko. "I am please to accept this new role as vice chair of this important organization which has served as a tremendous resource to me in governing Islip. My colleagues to the east and west, and from both sides of the aisle, have provided me with incredible perspective through the SCSA---our consistent sharing of ideas and best practices will only improve our own Towns and Suffolk as a region."
