Metropolitan Hosts Nassau County Comptroller

On Friday, July 21st our Diocesan Metropolitan hosted Nassau County Comptroller, Honorable George Maragos at the Diocesan Chancery for breakfast. The Nassau County Comptroller serves as a financial oversight officer for Nassau County and manages a budget of nearly $3 billion. The Comptroller was accompanied by Mr. Dilip Chauhan, Director of South East / Asian affairs and Mr. Jose Jacob, Director of Community Affairs. Mr. Jose Jacob is also a member of St. Baselios Orthodox Church of Elmont, New York. 

The Comptroller expressed the sentiment that his mission is not different from the mission of the church in that both are seeking to serve the people. His Grace Mar Nicholovos thanked comptroller for the effort to involve the minority communities in the affairs of the county and encouraged a fair representation of the minority communities.  The Comptroller presented Metropolitan Mar Nicholovos with a citation honoring the services of His Grace to the greater community. 

Reverend Father Sujit Thomas, Diocesan Secretary, was also present for the occasion.
