Guide to Public Officials

The Who, What, and Where Reference to your Federal, State, County, Town and Village Governments

Democracy takes work; it does not come easily. At the LIA, we appreciate the value of democracy every day. LIA members participate in our Strategic Committees that are pursuing goals for the benefit of the entire Long Island community.

The LIA encourages all Long Islanders to do the work of democracy. That means paying attention to what our elected officials are doing, and letting them know when we agree or disagree. Long Islanders are not generally known for their reticence, and that's a good thing. Government officials at the federal, state, county and local levels really can be made responsive to the concerns of ordinary citizens, but only if those citizens make the effort to tell them what they want. The Long Island Guide to Public Officials, published by the LIA and TD Bank, helps Long Islanders do that by making it easy to communicate with a wide range of elected officials.

The LIA is always available to answer any questions you might have. For information, please contact us.
