Suffolk County Clerk Judith Pascale has again been honored with the Best of New York Award from the Center for Digital Government for creating technical efficiencies in government. This is the third time her office has earned the “Best of New York” Award.
“Working with municipal partners to make government more efficient and productive is something I’ve strived for during my tenure as County Clerk,” commented Suffolk County Clerk Judith Pascale. “My office is honored to again be recognized by the Center for Digital Government as the ‘2016 Best of New York’.”
“Too often, our constituents encounter roadblocks when seeking government information, finding the search process difficult and cumbersome to navigate. By removing these barriers, and working hand in hand with other levels of government, it’s possible to draw from our collective resources and build technical programs that offer greater efficiencies and productivity,” stated Pascale. “By creating these efficiencies we can offer taxpayers increased value in terms of how their tax dollars are allocated.”
“The employees in the County Clerk’s Office are the backbone of my office. Their ability to look outside the box, recognize what our roles are in government, and identify areas where we can be more productive, are essential when attempting to build systems across municipal lines for the mutual benefit of our shared constituency.” commented Pascale.
Of New York’s counties, cities, towns and villages, eleven of New York’s most innovative, tech-savvy state and local government leaders and agencies have been selected by the Center for Digital Government to receive the prestigious Best of New York Award, an annual award that recognizes excellence and outstanding contributions in the area of Information Technology. The award will be presented at a ceremony later this month in Albany.
The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government. Through its diverse and dynamic programs and services, the Center provides public and private sector leaders with decision support, knowledge, and opportunities to help them effectively incorporate new technologies in the 21st century.
