Posted: Dec 19, 2012 By: Kristin Cipolla
Phoenix(December 19, 2012) —On December 13, the County Supervisors Association (CSA) Board of Directors elected Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney (District 4) as Arizona's representative to the Western Interstate Region (WIR), an affiliate of the National Association of Counties Organization (NACo). NACo is a national organization representing all counties, parishes and boroughs in the United States, before Congress and federal agencies. WIR is a coalition of 15 western states dedicated to the promotion of the region’s interests within NACo, including public land issues, community stability and economic development. The WIR appointment serves a vital role in advancing Arizona’s interests in NACo and before Congress.
Supervisor Tenney accepted the appointment stating, "I appreciate my colleagues' confidence in my ability to serve our state on important natural resources issues. These issues are important to all counties, both urban and rural. WIR's continued efforts to ensure that county governments continue to receive compensation for the tax-exempt status of federal public lands within their boundaries, safeguards the financial stability of many Arizona counties."
CSA Executive Director Craig Sullivan expressed his enthusiasm about the appointment, stating that, “I am very pleased Supervisor Tenney is serving in this role. He brings a personal awareness of the issues facing rural communities and has the determination to get things done. We look forward to serving with Supervisor Tenney in his new capacity, and we wish to thank his predecessor, Supervisor Richard Lunt, for representing CSA so capably at WIR.”
CSA is a non-partisan, non-profit research and advocacy organization representing Arizona’s 61 county supervisors. For more than 30 years, CSA has served as a forum for county leaders to address important issues facing local constituents and develop a proactive state and federal policy agenda. The organization is led by an executive board comprised of supervisors elected by their peers and is staffed by a team of professional policy analysts.
