Greene County Presiding Commissioner has been elected to be the state’s representative to the National Association of Counties board of directors.
Dixon was elected by the members of the Missouri Association of Counties and immediately begins a one-year term on the NACo board.
“I am honored to serve on the NACo board of directors and I look forward to the opportunity to help increase membership as well as help facilitate strong communication between MAC and the national organization,” Dixon said in a statement.
Dixon will be advocating for county priorities in federal policy, promote successful county initiatives and policies, and work to enhance the public’s knowledge of the importance of county government.
Paul Ipock, Webster County presiding commissioner and president of the Southwest County Commissioners Association of Missouri, was enthusiastic about Dixon’s appointment.
“As a fellow county commissioner, I am very proud that Bob was elected for this position. In all of his elected roles he has represented citizens well and he will continue that same level of service on the NACo board,” Ipock said in a statement.
