Westchester County Executive George Latimer has signed an Executive Order creating a Westchester County Asian-American Advisory Board as a part of his continued dedication to ensuring all have a voice in County government.
Latimer said: “Here in Westchester, we pride ourselves on our diversity. It is one thing to tout this, it is another to use it. This diversity is our greatest strength and it is imperative we ensure that all voices have a seat at the table.”
The Board will be composed of members of the Asian-American community with a demonstrated concern for its affairs in Westchester. The Board will be tasked with providing counsel on issues that affect the quality of life for Asian-Americans here in our community.
The Board will be comprised of 21 members appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the Board of Legislators. Of the first 21 members appointed, 10 will be appointed until December 31, 2019 and 11 will be appointed until December 31, 2020.
All subsequent appointments will have two year terms.
