Jensen Swears in New President

Assemblyman Josh Jensen (R,C,I-Greece) attended and swore in new President Ken Preston at the 2021 Association of Fire Districts of the State of New York (AFDSNY) Annual Meeting on May 7.

Ken is a 55-year member of the North Greece Fire District, where he served 32 years as commissioner. Previously, he served in the role of president for the Monroe County Fire District Officers Association, as well as the Western New York Law and Legislative Association. Additionally, he served as director of Region 5 in the Association of Fire Districts for the state of New York for 10 years and is a member of the Town of Greece Fire Council.

“It’s a tremendous honor to swear in Ken as the new president for AFDSNY,” said Jensen. “As the son of a volunteer firefighter and fire district Commissioner, I’ve seen firsthand the dedication and hard work our men and women in uniform put in each day to serve and protect our communities and the role that fire districts play in the organization and operations of our fire service.

“I could not be happier to see Ken step into this role; his extensive and impressive resume has equipped him to best serve the members of AFDSNY and our state, I have no doubt he will do an extraordinary job as president.”
