The New York State Conference of Mayors president Mayor Robert T. Kennedy led its executive committee meeting on Friday, October 4, at Gurney’s Montauk Yacht Club, bringing mayors from villages and cities throughout the state to the East End for the first time in history. The committee met to develop its 2020 legislative agenda and advocacy strategy including storm preparedness for coastal regions, flood prevention, adequate sales tax distribution, shared services, and village police policy.
“It was a pleasure welcoming the New York Conference of Mayors Executive Committee to Long Island’s beautiful East End for the first time. We had a productive meeting, outlining our legislative priorities for the coming year in Albany and throughout the state. As a Long Islander myself, it is important to bring this conference to all areas of the state, to better understand regional issues — like those in Montauk and the forks — and I look forward to representing their best interests as president of NYCOM,” said Kennedy, Mayor of the Village of Freeport.
