Chip LaMarca, member, Broward County Commission
Last week: This week, I attended the National Association of Counties (NACo) 82nd Annual Conference & Exposition, which is the largest meeting hosting a representation of elected officials and county staff from across the country. Participants from rural and urban counties, large and small budgets, all come together for four days of education, policy and sessions intended to help improve residents’ lives and the efficiency of county government. I had the distinct honor to serve as the Chair of the Finance, Pensions and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. The Committee proposed nine resolutions which were all approved by the NACo Board of Directors.
Looking ahead: I was honored to be reappointed by the new President of the National Association of Counties (NACo)’s to serve as the Chair of the Finance, Pensions and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. I look forward to continuing my service on this important committee to create and support policies that guide financial resources of counties, strong fiscal management, federal assistance, municipal borrowing, county revenues, federal budgets, federal tax reform and Native American issues. I am proud to have a strong relationship with my fellow county elected officials from around the country, from small and large, rural and urban counties, regardless of their politics.
