NACo is the only national organization representing county government. The organization, driven by its strong membership, represents counties across America. County leaders develop and shape the association’s mission and goal. NACo’s committees, whose members include county officials from every region of the country, have a variety of responsibilities.
Committee leadership assignments are key positions. The various NACo committees review and make recommendations on issues and legislation. Washington County has a high percentage of federal land ownership, and consequently, federal land and water policy is extremely impactful and significant. NACo is a powerful unifying voice for counties in Washington DC.
The PLSC has jurisdiction over all matters relating to federally-owned public lands including federal land management programs. Commissioner Gardner is excited to serve on NACo’s national leadership team.
