County names committee chairs, members

B y Derek Liebig

The Washington County Board of Supervisors has announced its committee assignments for 2014 and most remain unchanged since last year.

Committee chairs that were in place last year remain in place with a few notable exceptions.

Hampton Supervisor David O’Brien will chair the newly created Personnel Committee, which is an offshoot of the Finance Committee. Joining O’Brien on the committee are Putnam Supervisor John LaPointe, Jackson Supervisor Alan Brown, Fort Edward Supervisor Mitch Supernant and Granville Supervisor Matt Hicks.

Supernant will chair the Public Safety Committee now that last year’s chair, Kingsbury Supervisor Jim Lindsay is the chairman of the board of supervisors. Salem Supervisor Seth Pitts will serve as chairman of the Audit Committee, a post previously held by Supernant.

Hebron Supervisor and County Budget Officer Brian Campbell will continue to chair the finance committee as well as serving on the Government Operations, Health and Human Services and Public Works Committees.

Hicks will continue to chair the Government Operations Committee in addition to serving on the Finance, Personnel and Public Works Committees.

Besides chairing the Personnel Committee, O’Brien will also serve on the Audit, Government Operations, Public Safety and Public Works Committees.
Whitehall Supervisor George Armstrong will continue to serve on the Agriculture/Planning/Tourism and Community Development committee as well as the Audit, Community College, and Public Safety Committees.

Dresden Supervisor George Gang, one of three new supervisors who were elected in November, will serve on the Audit, Community College, Health and Human Services, and Public Works Committees.

A full list of all committees is available on the county’s website, www.co.washington.ny.us.
