The membership of the NSWCA recently had the pleasure of being addressed by Michelle E. Schimel, former member of the New York State Assembly. Ms. Schimel represented the 16th Assembly District in Nassau County from 2007 to 2016. At the conclusion of her entertaining talk, NSWCA President and Plainview Water Commissioner Andrew Bader presented Ms. Schimel with a commemorative plaque.
“Few are as deserving of this recognition as Michelle Schimel,” President Bader acknowledged. “Her unwavering support, advocacy and promotion of our shared goals of greater sustainability and maintenance of the highest standards of water quality have been well documented through the years. This plaque is but a small token of gratitude from all twenty-one commissioner-elected NSWCA member water districts for all her efforts on our behalf, and on behalf of the people of Long Island.”
