Saratoga County Attorney Stephen M. Dorsey was elected president of the County Attorneys’ Association of the State of New York (CAASNY) during its recent annual meeting.
The association is an organization that represents counties across the state, and helps foster effective government and promotes the science of law.
“It is an honor to serve as president of this esteemed and impactful association,” Dorsey said. “It means a great deal that my work as Saratoga County Attorney has enabled me to take my experience to this statewide organization. I am looking forward to contributing to this group, as well as learning from my colleagues and peers from around the state.”
The association is made up of county attorneys and their assistant county attorneys from throughout New York state. CAASNY centers its attention on constructing professional relationships among county and New York City corporation counsel attorneys in New York state.
Not only does CAASNY pledge to take action within the State legislature; it also presents legal ideas and standpoints to Federal legislators. During meetings, members pose discussion of local laws recently passed among various counties in New York state, and their possible success and failures since their passing.
“Saratoga County congratulates our attorney for rising through the ranks to lead this prestigious professional organization,” said Stillwater Supervisor Ed Kinkowski, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “Mr. Dorsey has proven himself to be an effective attorney and a steady and reliable guide for our County government, and it speaks to the high-quality employees that live here and work for our residents.”
Dorsey, of Saratoga Springs, has been with the county for 30 years and has been county attorney since 2010. He will serve as president of CAASNY for a term of one year.
