At a recent meeting of the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association held at Spuntino Restaurant in Williston Park, NSWCA elected a new board for the 2022 term, which runs through Dec. 31, 2022.
The meeting was hosted by Plainview Water District Commissioners Mark B. Laykind, Andrew N. Bader and Amanda R. Field.
The newly elected NSWCA 2022 Board includes new President Patricia Peterson, commissioner of the Locust Valley Water District, who succeeds outgoing President Amanda R. Field of the Plainview Water District; 1st Vice President John F. Coumatos, commissioner of the Bethpage Water District; 2nd Vice President Ralph Atoria, commissioner and Chairman of the South Farmingdale Water District; Secretary Joseph Perry, commissioner of the South Huntington Water District; and Treasurer Michael J. Kosinski, commissioner and Chairman of the Roslyn Water District.
“It’s a privilege to be part of this distinguished board and to lead the membership of the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association in 2022,” Peterson remarked. “NSWCA commissioners from all 21 districts that comprise our organization are elected by voters to represent their best interests in water supply, quality and regulatory compliance. Long Island has one of the world’s greatest freshwater aquifers. As stewards of the public’s trust, NSWCA will continue to promote sustainability, conservation and transparency through education while assuming our great responsibility in protecting the invaluable aquifer that supplies the more than 620,000 people we serve.”
