Long Island Association president Kevin Law has been named to the annual list of New York State's most influential nonelected officials by City & State newspaper.
The third annual list compiled by City & State tracks the most "important nonelecteds who have the ear of the state’s top politicians."
Law, who has been with the LIA since 2010, was the only Long Islander on the list, which included other prominent names such as Mylan Denerstein, counsel to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, and Kathryn Wylde, the head of Partnership for New York.
The LIA is a nonprofit group comprised of local small business owners that helps promote regional economic development and job creation. Most recently, the LIA has been heavily involved in the Accelerate Long Island project, a new program that is expected to create new companies from research at local labs and universities.
Before joining the LIA, Law was the chief executive of the Long Island Power Authority and deputy county executive for Suffolk County.
