Governor Appoints Kathy Halas to Task Force


Council Executive Director Kathy Halas was appointed by Governor Kathy Hochul to a three-year term on the New York State Child Care Availability Task Force. New York State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins recommended her for the role. The task force, comprised of representatives from state and local offices, SUNY, CUNY, advocacy groups, nonprofits and others, will evaluate child care needs throughout the state, advise the state on implementation of universal child care, and seek to address the child care workforce crisis, among other things. "The child care crisis is not something any one community or entity can solve on its own; we must work together to develop sustainable policies and practices that will ensure every child and every family has access to safe, affordable, quality care," said Kathy. "I am grateful to Governor Hochul and Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins for including me on this task force and look forward to working with all members to create a child care system that provides a strong foundation for children, families and our economy."
