Furthering his mission to bring fresh perspectives and an array of expertise to Westchester County Government, County Executive George Latimer is inviting residents to apply to join a Westchester County Advisory Board or Commission in the new year. The Westchester County Boards and Commissions are designed to give citizens a voice in their local government, and allow them to influence the decisions that shape their quality of life in Westchester. 

A list of the County’s Boards and Commissions can be found on the Westchester County Website.

Latimer said: “Participation on a board or commission is one of the most effective steps citizens can take in becoming an active voice in their County government. What we’ve tried to do over the course of time is to identify people that have a specific talent or ability, and bring them into the administration to complement the members who are already here working with us. If you have an interest in any of our advisory boards or commissions, I encourage you to find out more or apply today.”

Each Board and Commission is listed with a description, responsibilities, term length and vacancies, along with a link to apply.
