FRANKLIN COUNTY (COLUMBUS), Ohio — Douglas County Commissioner Mary Ann Borgeson on July 24, 2017 was elected and sworn in as National Association of Counties' Second Vice President at the NACo Annual Conference in Franklin County, Ohio. 

alt In this national leadership role, Borgeson said she plans to work to preserve local decision-making and ensure      county issues are heard at the national level. Borgeson is the first woman from Nebraska to be elected to an  executive position for NACo.

 “I am excited to be a part of the national conversations and bring back home solutions that are best for our  taxpayers,” Borgeson said. “One of the things that I’ve learned over the years of being a Douglas County  Commissioner is that we have to work with all levels of government and that includes the national level. What  happens at the national level has a direct impact on counties.”

 Borgeson’s election positions her to become NACo’s president in July 2019.

 “This is an opportunity for me to both reinforce and to amplify the importance of county government,” she said. “I  want to continue to build upon and contribute to NACo’s positive momentum of spreading the message that counties are relevant and counties matter.”
