Painter named to national leadership posts

BATAVIA, OH — Clermont County Commissioner David Painter has been named to the National Association of Counties (NACo) Board of Directors. He also was appointed Vice Chair of NACO’s Environment, Energy and Land Use Steering Committee.

NACO President Larry Johnson said Painter was “chosen because my goal is to build a talented and committed leadership team.”

“Emerging from the last year of challenges, uncertainty and, in many cases, tragedy, we are ready to thrive,” Johnson said. “My presidential initiative will highlight your service and the important work of your committees in these realms: Technology, Health, Readiness, Infrastructure, Vulnerable Populations and Economic Opportunities. I am counting on you to advance my initiative to make life better for all those we serve.”

Painter said: “It’s a true honor to serve in these important positions. NACo is a great organization that supports counties as they provide vital services that impact the daily lives of all citizens. I feel fortunate to be a part of NACo’s leadership team.”
