County Activity on Policy Issues

Testifying in front of the General Assembly, whether in written or oral form, is one of the best ways for counties to advocate for their communities. While the CCAO staff is in constant contact with legislative and executive offices and staff, the voice of county commissioners, executives, and councilmembers resonates on a deeper level.

The boxes below contain links to testimony to the state legislature from CCAO staff and from member counties. While the positions of individual counties may not also be the same as the Association as a whole, we always encourage members to advocate on their own behalf.
