Oswego County Legislator James Karasek has been named to the New York State Association of Counties standing committee on Children with Special Needs.
An advocate for those with disabilities, Karasek is employed as manager for independent living services for Oswego ARISE.
“Your participation on this committee assists the association in developing priorities for our ongoing advocacy efforts,” NYSAC President Mary Pat Hancock said in announcing Karasek’s appointment.
The New York State Association of Counties represents, educates, and advocates for county governments and the thousands of elected and appointed county officials who serve the public across New York State.
NYSAC’s standing committees are essential in the development of the series of resolutions that go before the full county delegation and become the basis of NYSAC’s legislative program for the year.
