Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford was recently sworn in for a fourth term as representative of the 4th L.D.  The installation of Legislator Ford and her 18 colleagues was held at the Nassau County Cradle of Aviation and was attended by religious leaders, dignitaries and elected officials from national, state and local government.

Legislator Ford stated, “I extend my heartfelt thanks to the residents of the 4th L.D. for giving me the privilege of continuing to serve as their representative in the County Legislature. I believe that serving the public is the highest civic calling in our society. I will continue to do all I can to make County government more effective and responsive and to make sure that vital government services are available to citizens who need them. The next two years will be a time of great challenges, but also great opportunities. Most importantly, we must continue to make the difficult decisions to reform Nassau County in order to restore the County’s fiscal health, and create the foundation for a strong, stabile County government well into the next decade.”

Legislator Ford was also appointed as the Chairwoman of the Legislature’s Economic & Community Development & Labor Committee, Vice Chairwoman of the Government Services & Operations Committee, and as a member of the Public Safety Committee, and the Planning, Development & the Environment Committee.
