Nassau County Legislator Carrié Solages (D – Lawrence) was recently sworn for a new term representing the residents of the Third Legislative District during the first meeting of the 14th term of the Nassau County Legislature. Legislator Solages and his Minority Caucus colleagues were sworn in by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. The Third Legislative District encompasses the communities of Elmont, Valley Stream, South Floral Park, Inwood and portions of Lawrence & North Woodmere.
During organizational meetings held later in the day, Legislator Solages’ expanded slate of committee assignments now include the Finance committee as well as the newly formed Assessment committee. He will continue to serve as ranking member of the Legislature’s Minority Affairs committee and is the new ranking member for the committee on Planning, Development and the Environment. Legislator Solages will continue to serve on the Government Services & Operations, Public Works and Aircraft Noise Abatement committees.
“Working together, we have accomplished so much for the residents of the Third Legislative District – and there is still so much more to do,” Legislator Solages said. “As they say, the reward for hard work is more hard work, and I am especially grateful for the opportunity to advocate for taxpayers as the newest member of the Finance and Assessment committees. I am looking forward to working collaboratively to make Nassau County more affordable, inclusive and equitable for all of our families.”
