San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox was sworn in Monday as president of the National Association of Counties.
Cox will lead national policy discussions on issues facing more than 3,000 counties across the country.
“I’m deeply honored and appreciative of the opportunity to take on this new challenge,” he said. “No level of government impacts people more directly than county government and it is critical for local government voices to be heard at the national level.”
Cox has served in numerous leadership roles with the association. He was also formerly president of the California State Association of Counties.
Cox’s presidential initiative will be Connecting the Unconnected, focused on linking vulnerable residents with public services in order to increase self-sufficiency.
“We want to see every county in America connect residents to the critical services they need so that they can live well and thrive,” Cox said.
