Plainview Water District Chairman Joel Kessler was sworn in as commissioner for his sixth term at the District’s Board of Commissioners public meeting last week.

Kessler was elected to the position by the public in voting on Dec. 10. He was also appointed as chairman by the Board of Commissioners for a second consecutive year. 

“I am extremely grateful and honored that the Plainview-Old Bethpage community has entrusted me with their vote and I will continue to ensure that our community will consistently receive clean, safe and affordable drinking water,” Kessler said. “We have made outstanding progress in the last year by implementing a variety of infrastructure projects focusing on water quality and safety, and I look forward to building on that progress.”

In addition to serving on the Board of Commissioners for the Plainview Water District, Kessler is a member of Young Israel of Plainview and previously served on the board of trustees of the Plainview Jewish Center.

He currently works for Nassau County at the Office for the Physically Challenged, where he assists disabled individuals and senior citizens.

Chairman Kessler, his wife, Peggy, and their three children reside in the Plainview-Old Bethpage.
