Lake County Commissioner appointed to NACo committee

RELEASE DATE: October 12, 2006

TAVARESLake County Commissioner Welton Cadwell was appointed this month to vice chair of the National Association of Counties (NACo) steering committee for community and economic development.

Commissioner Cadwell
The appointment by NACo President Colleen Landkamer, a county commissioner from Blue Earth County, Minn., marks the second appointment for Cadwell to this committee. In 2004, he was appointed to the Community and Economic Development Steering Committee, in addition to the 120-member Board of Directors for NACo.

NACo’s 11 steering committees form the policy-making arm of the association. The Community and Economic Development Steering Committee focuses on general community development and redevelopment, housing programs, subdivision regulations, building and housing codes, public works and economic development. The work of the steering committee, if approved, becomes part of NACo’s efforts in representing the best interests of counties nationwide in Washington D.C.

“I am honored by this opportunity to serve NACo,” Cadwell said. “It is imperative that we explore all the issues related to economic development and assure that we have adequate resources to keep our communities viable.”

Elected as the District 5 representative to the Lake County Board of County Commissioners in 1992, Cadwell currently serves on the Florida Association of Counties Board of Directors as immediate past president.
